RE: filmscanners: OT: Copyright on Photo's



Actually Lynn, if you look at my response, you will find that we are for all
intents and purposes in agreement on this. :-)

Here we go again on the slippery slopes of "Intellectual Property!" I would
say yes, because you own them and you're trying to sell them. Art, Laurie,
Bill Gates and Michael Getty would probably say "No!" As long as you're not
selling multiple prints you've done yourself (which would be a definite
no-no), it would be impractical for the photographer or his/her heirs to sue
you. You might even learn their identity. :-)
