8x10 printing question
I've been doing TTM for about a year, and I've been doing 8x10's for about 3-4 months. I recently was asked by Walgreens if the pictures were copyrighted. After a decent argument they gave me the pictures, but I was wondering if it is usually easier to order them online? I never sell any of them, and that all end up in my collection, has anyone tried printing from an online site?

I posted a note about this and Walmart awhile back. I didn't personally experience it, but I know someone who did. I don't know what these stores are trying to prove, other than this is a litigious society and some a-hole photographer thought it would be fun to sue for copyright infringement. The reality is, if you are looking to do real high end prints, you aren't going to a walmart, etc. I really don't get what all the fuss is about. Particularly when you're printing one photo- even if you were selling it, how much would you even get???? Somebody going in and doing 15-20 prints of the same thing? I can see that. The one off prints, I just don't understand why they bother. The other thing is, none of them store what you print on a long term basis anyway. So how the heck can they ever prove what you printed in the first place? The files get deleted. So it's really the store protecting itself from the professional photographer coming in, getting a print done, then suing them for not questioning why they were printing a copyright image without his permission. Thank the trial attorneys for this stupidity.
