Copyright is automatic on creation of an original work.
Usually the author or creator of the work is the copyright owner. An exception is when a person is employed to create the materials, in which case their employer is the copyright owner. As James Pendleton employs an in house photographer, copyright on all photographs is owned by the company. Any photographs made in the UK or by a UK citizen since August 1989 will be in copyright for the life of the authors plus 70 years.
Infringement of copyright is both a civil and criminal offence. It is also an offence for any group or organisation to authorise infringement. Infringement of copyright in relation to any photograph taken by or on behalf of James Pendleton will incur a fee of £500 per photograph.
James Pendleton is an amazing company. They have been a big part of me winning a bronze medal in Rio 2016 and have been so supportive with all my achievements, which wouldn't have been possible without them. They have given me so many opportunities, I am privileged to be associated with such fantastic people who give so much back to the local community.
Having recently rented my property through James Pendelton, I can't recommend them highly enough. They walked me through the process and found me amazing tenants. From the first contact they were professional and informative. Thank you to Jacob, you were amazing. Thank you also to the Angel Department who, after realising I needed safely certificates, sorted everything out for me and made sure I had everything in order.
