Copyright Information:

Copyright law dictates that any person instructing that restoration work be carried out must own the copyright of the photograph or have permission of the copyright owner. Further information is provided below.

What Is Copyright?

The U.S. Constitution and the Federal Copyright Act give "copyright" protection to "authors" for their "original works," such as photographs. Among the several protections that copyright owners have are the exclusive right to:

  •  Make copies of the work

  •  Prepare other works based on the original

  •  Distribute copies of the work to the public by sale, rental, lease, or lending

  • To publicly perform and display the work

Who is the owner?

The law says the "author" is the owner of the copyright. The author of a photo or image is usually the person who took the picture or created the image. If you took the photo, you own the copyright. If a professional photographer took the photo on your behalf, then he or she owns the copyright. If that photographer is the employee of a firm or other person in the business of making photos, then his or her employer is considered the author.

How long does a Copyright last?

The general rule is that a copyright lasts the lifetime of the author plus 50 years. If the copyright work was a work for hire, then the copyright lasts 75 years from the date of the first publication or 100 years from the date of creation, whichever expires first.

How Can I Get Copies Made?

If we cannot make the copies for you, go to your photographer and request them. Professional photographers will do their best to see that your needs are met.


Will Digital Restoring® reproduce photographs depicting nudity?

The answer is yes. However, Digital Restoring® reserves the right not take in any images of pornographic content. We understand sometimes there is a fine line between art and pornography. If we feel that it's in that gray area, we (more than likely) will reject the order. Taste is subjective, true. But its our line to draw.
