A word about copyrights,
and "Save this image as..." capabilities.

All photographs and text appearing in the Bob Bennett - Photo-Illustration site are the exclusive property of Bob Bennett, and are protected under United States and international copyright laws. The photographs MAY NOT be reproduced, copied, used in any way, without the written permission of Bob Bennett and payment of useage fee or arrangement thereof.

No images are within Public Domain. Use of any image as the basis for another photographic concept or illustration is a violation of copyright. These copyright interests will be vigorously protected. In the event that an infringement is discovered you will be notified and invoiced the industry-standard TRIPLE FEE for unauthorised usage and/or prosecuted for Copyright Infringement in US Federal Court where you will be subject to a fine of US$100,000.00 statutory damages as well as our court costs and attorneys' fees.

Stashing the low resolution versions here as a reminder for future assignment work or print purchasing is OK - they end up in your hard-drive cache, anyway - and there is so much that is lost in the process of 'compacting' a 16x20 " print down to 400x500 pixels or so for the web, what you end up with is ... like a bad xerox copy.

However....that's about all you can do with them. In addition to the lawsuit that I, or any photographer or artist could file against an infringer, consider this - it could easily apply to ANY image you see on the web:

Everything in the 'Assignments Portfolio' has been published by a BIG corporation, some of whom have extended rights to the work - they have legal staffs that would be most distressed to discover that work their company had commissioned and paid well for was being used elsewhere, without permission.

Everything in the 'Art (Coast and Desert) Portfolios' and the California landscape sections has already been registered with the U.S. Copyright Office.

So, if you're thinking about any more 'ambitious' uses than your browser has in mind... you might want to think twice - you never know whose toes you could be stepping on.

If you would like to use or purchase something, it would be a lot better to E-Mail Bob.
