Copyright Law Protects Creators' Rights

Illustrations are considered "intellectual property" and are protected by the U.S. Federal Copyright laws and the Berne Convention, an international intellectual property treaty. Copyright law gives the copyright holder exclusive rights over a work's reproduction, modification, distribution and display. It may not be reproduced or modified in any form, electronic or otherwise, without the consent of the copyright holder. Any unauthorized use of the image, with the exception of fair use, is considered an infringement of copyright. Even in the case of unintentional copyright infringement, the publisher of the work and/or the person who initially caused the infringement can be held accountable for damages and other costs.
