Pictures too good for Wal-Mart.
Here is something that happened to me that you might find interesting. Last night I downloaded some shots I had taken with my D300 of my two sons and one other picture of a co-worker with her two children. I sent these to Wal-Mart online for 1 hr. processing, as they were really just snap shots. When I got to Wal-Mart this afternoon to pick them up they told me that they were too good and I was violating copyright law by trying to pick them up. They said I had to have a release form from the owner in order to get the prints. I explained that I was an amateur photographer and took the shots in my office/studio. They said no these pictures have a backdrop and that meant that they could not let me have them. They refused me service saying that it was in violation of the law.
The last time I checked, our criminal law presumes innocence, not guilt.
I asked them if they had been bad prints could I have them? They refused to discuss it with me and pushed their copyright flyer at me saying, “here is our policy”. I stated that I did not need to read copyright policy, as I was the owner of the photos. After speaking with the Store manager, they refused to let me pick up my prints.
Any suggestions?
