According to FEDERAL COPYRIGHT LAW, reproduction rights to a photograph remain with the photographer. To insure compliance with this law Lakeside Photoworks will reproduce a photograph only with written consent from the copyright owner.
Photographs taken before 1979 bearing the copyright symbol (a C with a circle around it) cannot be copied without written consent of the copyright owner. Any photograph taken after 1979 bearing the copyright symbol or those photographs that appear to have been taken professionally should never be copied without written consent of the copyright owner.

You may be asked to obtain or sign a copyright release from the copyright owner before Lakeside Photoworks will accept an order for reproduction.
