Intellectual Property Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer
Thanks Wayne for your reply. Yes the only thing that I sell on my website is framed photos using my own photography.... all in public places. I was worried that certain icons ..... Hollywood Sign, Golden Gate Bridge might get me into trouble even though it's taken from public places.
There is no other use of the image, i.e. not licensing image to others. I just sell photos of my OWN images to website customers.
Awesome response and easy to understand explanations.
