When an artist creates a work, the artist immediately has copyright protection. Copyright is automatic. Simply stated, "copyright" means "the right to copy." With few exceptions a living artist holds copyright to all works which he or she has created. For that reason only the owner or someone to whom permission is granted is allowed to produce or reproduce the work in question or to permit anyone else to do so. Unauthorized uses of copyright images are discouraged since it is against Canadian copyright law.
Copyright – All images and text are protected by copyright law and may not be used for commercial reproduction or mass distribution unless by permission of the artist.
Having stated that, I am pleased to assist you.
