Professional photographic work is copyrighted. It is illegal to reproduce or publish work without written permission from the copyright owner. Even though you own the print you do not own the reproduction rights. The reasoning is the same as explained in the above answer concerning purchasing image files. If you have a legitimate reason to copy the image, talk to us.
