Registered Copyright
All of the images on this website have been registered with the United States Library of Congress, Copyright Office.  As the owner and author of these registered images I maintain the ability to claim statutory damages, actual damages and disgorged profits of $150,000.00 or more per image.

How do you know if you’re in violation of federal copyright laws?
You are in violation of Federal Copyright laws if you right-click, copy, paste, print, modify or have any other use or possession of any image on this website without a paid license and express written and signed permission of Lori Grimmett. Copyright infringement, (including possession or use without intent to sell) is a federal crime. Fines will be enforced to the full extent of the law.

Watermark
If you crop out, paint over or remove my watermark in any way, you are in violation of the U.S. Copyright Act (Section 1202) and will be fined between $2,500.00 – $25,000.00 (in addition to attorneys’ fees, damages and other fines).

No Excuses
This clear and direct warning is on every page of my website, along with a watermark over each image, therefore you cannot claim infringement unwittingly. Because I charge a fee for license, use, display, print and possession of any of my images I can easily prove suffering a loss and loss of income as a result of infringement.

Fines will be enforced
Aside from my license fees I also have a rental policy. This policy states that there will be a fee of $100.00 per day, per image for anyone who has possession of my images (in any form) that they did not license before possession. This includes (but no limited to), right-clicking on any image, stolen images, possession through third parties, or any other form of possession (even without intent to sell). This fee will be enforced along with other damages, loss for usage of my material, and loss of income. The clock is ticking.

This means you
By using my website you agree and are held liable for any damages, infringement, loss of income, etc. that may occur.  I wouldn’t ask you to work for me for free.  I have a family to feed and electric bills to pay too.  Please respect my ability to put food on my family’s table, by respecting my copyright.  Thank you.
