Re: Requests for photographs

I visited with one of our state archivists on the issue of copyright several years ago, and we were told that by clarifying that we’re not making a profit from a copy of a photo or document, but just charging enough to cover paper and toner, it falls under the “Fair Use” ruling/clause/something-like-that for our type of institution. That was in 2009, so may have changed since then.
