    Hi,

    I want to do some prints, particularly a phonebook. I'm worried about companies attempting to claim rights to my photos. Any company out there that is quality that doesn't do this type of bs?

    Thanks for any help!

    I’m not following your question.

    I think what he's trying to say is that he's worried about a print on demand company from using his personal photos he's taken without proper licensing, as in paying him to use it, or he's worried about his secret Batman cosplay getting out into the wild and being teased about it.

    Yes - companies have sneaky ways of attempting to steal personal IP. They’ll say oh yes you can use our service, but uploading pictures for us to print constitutes letting us use those photos forever. I think I saw recently that Shutterfly as a similar licensing issue where if you sign in with Google/FB they download your photos and assert licensure to use them forever. I used to use Apple’s print service but now who the **** can I trust?

    I don’t know if this is in the ballpark, but I read that Miller’s Professional Imaging is popular. It specifically addresses ownership and respects ip and ©.

    That’s actually what I was just looking at. They do only want to work with professionals but have a customer-facing site mpix as well. I actually reached out to ask and got an email back saying they don’t do the things I’m worried they’d do. So that’s good.
