"I have had museums in DC steal my images for a textbook frontis peice and I simply invoiced the Director every day until I was paid. I have had many folks try to steal my images - they don't do well in the end."

"Still weird to have an artist take the stance that Tiffany Alvord (well, her mom) is. You don't encounter that from artists at that level all that much. Most time I bring photos to shows, the artists actually really like them. Again though, I…"

"I think that's a bit more clear cut, since physically copying licensed works (i.e. printed film photos as above, movie stills and posters, etc.). The issue that Alvord's mom/manager brings up is much more vague in this instance. She…"

Rich replied to WHuffman's discussion Can you legally sell an autographed photo?
"Yep, I get that. From a usage standpoint, it can be problematic. From a quality standpoint, usually not so much. I often bring photos to shows I got to, so I'm cautious enough on the copyright front just for the sake of not running into…"

Joe W. replied to WHuffman's discussion Can you legally sell an autographed photo?
