Stagecl Posted October 12, 2006 Report Share Posted October 12, 2006 One of the gals who LA's in our area had an interesting situation happen to a picture she posted on her website. The quilt was an original design of the maker and the quilting was custom. My understanding is the LAer had permission to take a picture, but I am not clear as to if there was an understanding that this picture would be on her website or if there was permission to post it on the web...I also understand there is a copyright notice on her web site on the front page. Anyway, a group downloaded the picture and are using it for their logo, cards, etc. The way this was discovered was a member in the group call the quilt owner asking if the quilt was for sale. Needless to say, the onwer is not happy as the group who is using it is making money off of it from my understanding. I don't know what the outcome of this situation will be as it has just occured in the past 2 weeks and things are up in the air. The point I am trying to make is if you use a picture of a customer's quilt on a website...make sure you have permission...copyright the picture somehow (especially if it is an original design) and hope for the best since people are not always honest. I think under the picture you can just state that there is a copyright with the year and the month...not sure...does anyone know? That's all...
