Copyright Issues

The same careful attention that you, as a photo, frame-shop or gallery owner, have paid to complying with copyright regulations over the years, must also be given to digital imaging and restoration services. The recent tightening of the restrictions in the copyright law, has amplified the importance of ensuring that your customer owns the copyright to the images being submitted for restoration or enhancement.

It is important and mandatory that the Precious Photos, Inc. order form be signed by the customer acknowledging their ownership of the copyright of submitted work. Precious Photos, Inc. reserves the right to refuse any submitted work order that has not been signed by the customer. You can see why the customer signature is the single most important step to contracting Precious Photos, Inc. services.
