Walgreens once asked me if I took a Pudge Rodriguez photo and I was like yep. They gave me a weird look called the manager and they said, they will print it this time but won't print anymore.

Why not just purchase fully licensed 8x10's from a reputable source rather than going through sharpprints or walgreens?

Update on Sharpprints.... I've ordered 10+ times of orders between 50 and 200 photos at a time. Never an issue. I placed an order a few days ago and they refused to print due to copyright issues. I inquired and stated that I'd never had a problem with them prior and was told that a lawsuit has been filed in regards to their copyright violations. Any suggestions on sites that print copyrighted images? I will add, I've always digitally signed a disclaimer that I have no intention to sell the images. Which I don't. Ninety-nine percent of my 8x10s are celebs and I have them signed for my collection. The majority have been signed in person at Sundance and others are TTM. Any help out there?

Also, with all due respect, spare me the 'reputable' companies that sell images at 10 bucks a pop!

Share Prints no longer prints professional photos of athletes/celebrities because of the lawsuits going on with Getty/AP, without a signed waiver from the company the images belong to.
Some people use Wal Mart, Walgreens, Costco, etc.

Glad I read this, during this minor league season I want to get pictures with my daughter and players, print 8x10s and Get them signed but Walgreens is too much. If I order 10-15 on sharpprints it looks like a huge savings. Thanks everyone

Article related to the case just posted last week . Source for original article: https://www.law360.com/articles/948993

NY Man Agrees To Pay $21.3M Over Stolen Getty Pics Scheme
By Dorothy Atkins

Law360, San Francisco (July 28, 2017, 1:44 PM EDT) -- A New York man has agreed to pay Getty Images Inc. $21.3 million to end allegations he sold stolen login database credentials to a co-conspirator who then downloaded thousands of copyrighted images and used them to run an illegitimate business on Facebook, according to court documents filed in Ohio federal court on Thursday.

Citing the settlement, U.S. District Judge Solomon Oliver Jr. signed a consent judgment Thursday on two counts brought under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act against Larry Hebeler and tossed the rest of the claims against him without awarding attorneys’ fees.

The consent judgment is the latest development in a June 2016 lawsuit Getty Images originally launched against Walter A. Kowalczuk, alleging he ran an illegal business that sold stolen images owned or licensed by Getty Images through a private Facebook group named “Autographs 101.”

In November, Getty Images amended its complaint, naming 13 additional defendants, including Hebeler and Larry Barnes, who downloaded up to 127 of the stolen images.Since then, seven co-conspirators have agreed to pay Getty Images $15,000 each, and in February, Kowalczuk agreed to pay $14 million to resolve allegations against him, according to the docket. On Thursday, Barnes also agreed to pay $25,000 to end allegations against him.

Getty Images has dropped claims against one of the named defendants, and claims are still pending against two of the remaining defendants: Jaysen Moslehi, who was the administrator of the Facebook group, and Jamie Blye, who acted as a runner for Kowalczuk and shared in the proceeds, according to the complaint.

Getty Images was tipped off about the illegal Facebook group in March 2016 and shortly after discovered that Kowalczuk was using the group to sell stolen Getty Images photographs of popular professional sports teams and athletes, the suit said.
Between March and April 2016, Kowalczuk allegedly committed "massive" copyright infringement, downloading more than 3,400 Getty Images photos from its database using stolen login credentials provided by Hebeler, the suit said.

Hebeler had sold Kowalczuk the login credentials using multiple aliases on the site SportsCollectors.net, including “Norm,” “Jerseys4me,” “DaBills24” and “John Peters,” the suit claimed.

Meanwhile, co-conspirators in the Facebook group would select and purchase the stolen photos through Facebook’s private messaging service, referring to the stolen Getty Images photographs using the code word “spaghetti” in an effort to hide their illegal activities. They also shared stolen images from the Associated Press, which they referred to as “apples,” according to the complaint.

The suit notes that Getty Images owns some of its images, but it also serves as a distributor for more than 200,000 artists, photographers and other content suppliers, who retain the copyrights to their images. Getty Images restricts the number of reproductions users can make of an image and how much the reproductions cost, according to the suit.

Counsel and representatives for Getty Images didn’t immediately respond Friday to requests for comment. Hebeler also didn't immediately respond Friday to requests for comment.

Getty Images is represented by Scott T. Wilsdon, Elizabeth Weinstein and Jeremy E. Roller of Yarmuth Wilsdon PLLC, and Robert E. Chudakoff and Paul R. Harris of Ulmer & Berne LLP.

Hebeler represented himself.

The case is Getty Images Inc. v. Kowalczuk et al., case number 1:16-cv-01400, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.

So where is the best place to get photos for a good cost, and not get sued?

Photofile for current major league players (you can ask them for a specific player not shown on their website and they should be able to get it for you)

or Four Seam for current minor leaguers (they were printing on cheap paper at first but apparently they are better quality now)

What is the cost for Four Seam? I'm looking at it now, but I can only buy complete rights for $278??? If I can purchase just the photo, that would be sweet.

just click the image and then click the green buy/license button. Should be 9.99 for 8x10s.

Not as cheap as Future Star Photos was back in the day but they have a good selection. Hopefully they add an 11x14 option too.
