    Either way I'm pretty sure that if you don't have an actual copywrite it doesn't even matter. So I wouldn't worry about it much lol. If you are looking for a cheap easy way to copywrite images, search the forums, they have discuses this many times.

    You don't have to put Copyright on images - Your rights of Copyright are enshrined in Law so you are protected whether you put it on or not.
    The usual defence of people who breach Copyright is 'I didn't know it was Copyrighted' or 'I didn't know who it was Copyrighted to' or ' it didn't say it was Copyrighted'.
    In Law ignorance is no defence. The Law expects you to make every effort to discover the information and if you can't then you don't use it.

    You spelled copyright wrong too. :greenpbl:

    I'm one for putting some sort of Identifying information on pictures posted to prevent people for passing them off as their own and if they do take your image, they have to remove your "watermark" and it makes it obvious that they knew they were doing something wrong.

    I won't comment on spelling - I spell evrythink wrong. :meh:

    Although the copyright is morally your's, it'll come down to who can prove ownership if there's a legal dispute. But as long as you keep your originals and don't release full sized, uncropped versions of your photo's then you should be fine.

    I'm curious, though - has anyone heard of a case where someone has been done for copying a photo even though they shot their own version of it? Of course, it happens all the time in music.
