I assume that most people would be looking to illegally use movie ads for this type of thing, most print houses I’ve worked with have something to say about orders submitted that are highly likely to be breaking copyright law.
Actually I did discuss “proof of copyright”, but NOT from using others copyrighted artwork, that is simply wrong both ethically and legally w/o permission.
Others, watch this video:
I was asking because my own original pictures were being hosted on their site, and I was concerned about others using my artwork w/o my permission/etc.
For now, my pictures are private and nobody sees them.
If I choose to participate in the Spoonflower set-up where other Spoonflower customers use my images, I will be compensated.
Each person has to shut their eyes and go to sleep at night, reflecting on their actions of the day.
If they knowingly use others artwork w/o permission....that is a deliberate, conscious choice they make as adults and have to live with the consequences...simply stealing is stealing...but lets not debate that in this thread.
(I've declined to do some freelance photography work due to dis-agreement about control of the images, its all about IP (Intellectual Property) and who controls that controls the flow of $$ these days)
