Photo from Land's End sign (copyright)

Okay girlfriend wanted a photograph of us at Land's End, it was £9.50 for a 7"x5". On the leaflet with it, it says they are the copyright holder and is illegal to reproduce the photo. Not up on copyright law but if I only use it for my private archiving (scan into computer) am I okay? They want another £9.00 for a copy.

Hiya, if it is just for yourself so that the original can be preserved then you are allowed.

What they dont know wont hurt them, scan it into your PC if you like, you've paid for it. Also, they would have to proove that you copied it illegally.

So unless you sign something and go jumping up and down in front of them waving it in their face shouting that you've copied it then nobody is going to do anything.

Go for it.

Or you could do what a certain person did when they visited it. Stand just at the front side of the sign next to the chain surrounding it. Take a picture, and then go nuts with PhotoShop.

Ahmm...not that it was me or anything but when I visited they wanted something like £12 for a picture....trust me when I say I got what I was after and saved myself £12.... :-D

How come you have to pay to have a picture taken there anyway? and also £9 is ridiculous to have your picture taken at the edge of england, it would have been cool if the world was square, and you could get a picture sitting on a corner....

I do kind of admire somebodies initiative/rudeness to just start charging people to have photos, like they have more rights there than anybody else :/

I think its because the sign is a tourist trademark for the UK and as such somebody has to bleed the tourists try so what other way of doing it than acquiring the copyrights to the sign and pictures they take of it.
