Is there any restriction for submitting images of banknotes?  I see three situations:

a) a photo of a banknote or a pack of banknotes in close-up (when serial numbers can be read)
b) a photo showing many banknotes (numbers can not be read)
c) a photo in which a banknote is shown but is just part of the composition or the background for the main subject

Regards,
Adelaide

i don't know for sure, but i have submitted a number of money images and not have been rejected for copyright.  I don't think they are a problem.

heres and experiment for you

take a picture of an american dollar bill, or download one from the interenet.  Open it in photoshop, and click print... you don't have to print anything, just select that option.

spooky.

I got rejection (from ISP only) for a photo of the two sides of a one dollar note: it was a full flat bank note and I guess that in this case, somebody could use the photo to print fake dollars :o

Other bank notes I have in my portfolio were accepted, so I assume that there is no issue with banknotes unless the photo has the potential to be used to print a fake... but I guess that the law may depends on the country on that subject :-\

Just my 2

For the lazy among us, what happens.

I beleive it is an offense to take photos of any currency (at least UK) but for some reason the sites do seem to accept it.  I thnk the law is there so if you do do a counterfeit, they have something to charge you on.

allright, then.. but it is more fun to find out by yorself.

photoshop will pop up a notice ... "warning, it is illegal to print money.. and so on"

now we know why photoshop cs2 runs so slow.  it is constantly scanning your image to see if it is a dollar and if you are doing something illegal. ;)

I've had a couple of shots with a US $1 bill accepted by all the sites I submit to, but not showing the whole bill...   I believe there are different rules for differnet countries, but if you stick away from the whole bank note you should be OK...

In New Zealand it's an offence becaues the crown has copyright over the layout of the banknotes.  You can only show 20% of the surface area, and not the serial number...  If you want to do more you can get written permission from the reserve bank, and they charge a fee for processing your application apparently (never bothered myself).

Cheers, Me.

I've heard something similar about UK pounds.  Probably all British crown currencies are like that (soory if it is not ok to say British crown for non-UK countries).
