Copyright Question


I am providing a print to someone as consideration for a Property Release. The original image was shot in 2004. What should the wording and year be on the notice I place on the back of the print? Should I also put my company name along with my name? Thanks.

  Mike, the copyright date (year) is the date you shot the image - 2004. If you intend to place info on the back, what you put is up to you.

  ... or, Michael, it could be the year it was first published. If you're doing this under the company name - say, in your capacity as owner - then be sure to put the name of your company along with your name on the image. For example:
    Copyright 2004, Mike R.
    XYZ Photographic Conglomerate, No job too big or too small, open 7 days a week, by appointment only, etc. etc.
    2130 ABC Boulevard, Anywhere U.S.A.
If the company isn't involved, then just your name (or the name of the actual copyright holder) will suffice.
Okie dokie?
