Copyright Notice and Applications for Images On This Site
Copyright in all of the images on this web site is owned by Mark Turner. You have the right to use the images in limited applications (see below), but not the right to distribute, sell or use the images in any way you wish.
You may use the images in comps, layouts for in-house presentations, rough draft designs for your clients, story-boards or other comps for yourself or your clients. That is the full extent of reproduction rights that are granted. For all other uses, you must contact Mark Turner or one of our stock agency partners.
You may not use the images for advertising, brochures, editorial , public multimedia presentations or any other uses. You may not sell, publish, license or otherwise distribute any of the images without a License To Use from Mark Turner. You may not place copies of the images on web pages, blogs, Facebook, MySpace, or anywhere else for general access.
When using images in comp layouts, remember that the copyright belongs to Mark Turner. Any use of the images beyond the limited uses set forth above constitutes a violation of the applicable copyright law and may result in damages and costs being assessed against you. If your design work involves manipulation of a photograph — retouching, shrinking, stretching, darkening, lightening, tracing, copying, adding images to other images or in any other way changing them — you may be creating a Derivative Work of the original image (i.e. anything derived from one or several original(s)) in violation of copyright law, which again may result in damages and costs being assessed against you.
Under copyright law, the creator of the original work also owns the copyright to all works derived from the original. Therefore, if all or part of your work is seen as having been derived from the original image(s), you do not own the copyright to the derivative work, just as you do not own the copyright to the original work.
If you have any questions or need information on determining usage prices please email or phone me. I’ll be happy to help.
