As copyright holders, photographers have the right to control all copying, reproduction, distribution, display and derivative works of their photographs.
Usage rights not sold to or specifically licensed to you or your firm remain with Danny Graber.
Physical possession of photographic material, such as digital files, DVDs, slides, prints, transparencies, or other material does not grant you the right to reproduce the images without specific permission from the photographer. It is a violation of Federal copyright law to reproduce photographs in any form, including color copying and scanning. Therefore, it is important to arrange licensing for the full scope of usage you require.
Under the 1976 Federal Copyright Act and the Bern International Copyright Agreement, photographs automatically receive copyright protection when they are created, even if a copyright notice is not displayed. Absence of the copyright notice does not relieve the prospective user from the responsibility of obtaining permission from the copyright holder.
Licensing agreements should be in writing. Generally, the photographer's proposal will describe the usage rights granted in addition to outlining the scope of the work and costs. Some photographers specify reproduction rights on their invoices. To protect everyone's interests and prevent misunderstandings, agreements should be signed by all parties involved with the photography. The photographs can be used by those licensed in the agreement.
We appreciate you including us in your projects and will assist you in any way in making images available to you.
