In my interview for Fox43 Finds Out: What To Do If Someone Uses Your Facebook Photos, I discuss copyright law. “As soon as I slap my logo on that or I turn it into an advertisement for my business, now I have to obtain copyright rights to that.” Says Alan Feldman, IT Consultant in York PA. I recommend royalty free photos for all business sites, or use paid photos. Never copy someone else’s work without giving them credit.
I used to offer copyright services through my marketing and internet hosting business. It was a registered trademark with the government. It added extra protection beyond the copyright that is implied or intended.
