The right to a credit is asserted in accordance with sections 77 & 88 copyright, designs and patents act 1988. It is IMPORTANT for editors to note that the use of certain images amongst those contained in the accompanying package will require specific authority to be obtained by Mainstream from the owners of the properties concerned. This is normally a simple matter of courtesy. Permission has only been obtained for FIRST USE in the context of the original feature for which the photography was commissioned. Subsequent re-use without the prior agreement of the owners of the properties can lead to the exchange of solicitors’ letters and the threat of LEGAL ACTION. It is essential that SUFFICIENT TIME should be available between selection and publication of the images for this permission to be obtained. The use of images without the prior agreement of the property owners is in no way condoned by Mainstream who will not be held responsible in the event of subsequent legal action against editors by the owners of properties concerned.
