April is Copyright Awareness Month

Have you ever had your rights infringed upon by a photo retailer? Hint: You most likely have and the worst part is both you and the retailer probably didn't even know it! Often retailers commit or allow copyright infringements simply because they do not fully grasp that they actually have some responsibilities.

But you can help make sure it doesn't happen again! (OK, maybe not completely, but you can help make it happens LESS!). April is Copyright Awareness Month. As such, you can work with PPA to better inform photo retailers across the United States. Especially those right in your neighborhood.

Your local retailers (including the big ones like Target, CVS and Walmart) might just be printing whatever comes in and not checking for copyrights. No one wants to infringe the law. You can help them know what they don't know. And most large chain stores don't offer systematic training for their in-store lab attendants or clerks. They will appreciate you helping protect their business, while you will also be protecting your own work! It's a training win-win.

 

There are two ways you can do your part and get involved:
