A photographic product is distinguished by a level of creativity and originality, as well as a distinctive character, and is protected by Copyright Law for 70 years after the death of the originator. Two types of copyright exist for photographic products:

1. Financial copyright– no one but the photographer is entitled to duplicate the product for financial gain, i.e. reproduce new copies of the images for publication.

2. Moral rights – naming of the photographer is always required. Moral rights include public rights of respect, meaning that a product may not be used in a manner that would be prejudicial to the honor or reputation of the originator. Moral rights also give protection against modification. Customers/end users may not modify or retouch an image without permission.

If an image is labeled “No Release” it is the user’s full responsibility not to use the image in a commercial context where a person/building/construction in the image can be directly identified. For further information please contact Human Spectra.
