copyright for company images????


A friend who is retiring from an airline asked me to take photos of memorabilia, i.e. pieces of her uniform through the years, like a hatbox, name badge, etc.
She wants these images made into photocards that she wants to give fellow employees for Christmas. Is this legal?

  Giving away as gifts, you'll be fine. There are probably company policies about portraying the company in a bad light. So if she were photographed, spring break or Vegas partaking in hedonistic activities and she were wearing her uniform, she could get fired.
But there isn't anything about wearing a logo and having your picture taken and printed that will get you into trouble.

  Thanks Gregory for your response. Actually it is just the memorabilia, i.e. hatbox with logo, name badge, and scarf with the company's name on it. All this is against a colored background. She is not in the photos.

  I agree with Gregory. As long as she is not selling these photos there shouldn't be a poblem. But if she is selling them later it might be a little iffy.
