Photo montage by Your Montage

Copyright in photos you provide

DISCLAIMER - this is not a definitive statement of copyright law (which varies from country to country and from time to time). You should check your own case with a professional lawyer; I am not qualified to advise you and won't bear any risk.

That said, the following should give you a rough idea of how copyright law works in the UK

The upshot of this is that if you want me to work with photos taken by someone else who is still alive and whom you didn't pay to take them, it's best to ask their permission; if they were taken by a professional we must get their clearance and they may decline or charge a fee.

Copyright in personal montages

I retain copyright in a montage I make for you; I send you an electronic copy at resolution suitable for display on a computer or printing small - you can print onto paper as many copies of this as you like for personal use, you may display it on a website if you include a visible link to my site somewhere suitable nearby. For any other use you must obtain my permission in writing before proceeding - especially commercial use; I may think a fee is appropriate. If you require larger prints and gift items, order them from me. Discounts are available for quantity orders.
