Copyright RECON: CVS Photo Centers - PPA Today

Copyright RECON: CVS Photo Centers


The first RECON mission of 2008 will investigate CVS Photo Centers. Please visit your local CVS store during the next month and help PPA determine their level of copyright compliance.

As a RECON volunteer, PPA is asking you to:

1.   Go to your local CVS. To find the CVS with a photo center nearest you click here.  You can elect to search for stores "with 1-hour photo" services.

2.   Ask them to make a copy of a clearly marked copyrighted print.

3.   If they say no, politely thank them for their time and simply leave. Do not attempt to talk them into copying it. If they do make the copy, be sure to keep the copy and your receipt as proof of the transaction. Also, any information you can provide regarding the staff person who assists you and any other details relating to your visit to the photo center is extremely helpful.

Regardless of the outcome of your visit, please let us know how it goes by sending an e-mail to mmatthews@ppa.comThe deadline for completing this effort is Friday, March 14, 2008

Once this effort is complete, PPA will share the overall results with RECON members and contact CVS with the results. Thank you in advance for your assistance in helping to enforce the rights of all professional photographers.
