    Release to print files

    For the first time (and last time), I'm about to deliver a CD for customer printing.
    Will the following, printed directly on the disc, satisfy mini-labs?

    Possession of this disc
    constitutes permission
    to print any and all files
    contained herein without
    limit or restriction.


    Thanks!
    -Pete

    It sounds good to me, but I also include a signed letter with a few specifics like the client's name, the date of the shoot etc.

    "without limit or restriction" is all encompassing and not something I would give away.

    The following is what goes on mine:

    just to give you a heads up. When you give your customer the CD. They no longer need a copy right to make prints from a CD. You gave that right up when you gave them the CD.

    Oh, I've got it. But, once again, I'm not "giving" them the rights... I'm SELLING the rights.

    Thanks.

    How about a link to something authoritative stating that.

    Copyright is not the same as a print release or a use license.

    For copyright to be transfered a copyright transfer document has to be signed by the copyright owner.

    Make an image file of the release and add it to the disc. Print shops look for that, plus you can print on the disc that it is included and give the filename (such as "copyright.jpg").
