| | Re: Copyright Issues When Making Bottle Caps?
even if you take your own professional portrait photogs of your own kids, you have to sign a waiver with walmart and walgreens (and other places of the like) that states you are the photographer and the pictures are your own work. i know this from taking some photos and having them printed. also, a friend of mine that does photography took pictures of her neice and gave mom the disk, but no release. walmart wouldn't let her have them. images are the intellectual property of the artist and belong to that person. that's why i was surprised that there were so many doing the bottlecap thing with copyrighted images.
