Red face help... sample forms w/copyright infringment info

Hello. I am so excited to have found this forum and I hope you can help me out with something. I've been working on digitial photo restoration projects for friends and family as favors and at no cost. As exciting as it is to now advertise this as part of our business (my husband and I have a part-time photography studio at home), I'm pretty nervous about all the legalities that go with photo restoration.

I had my first contact today regarding doing some photo restoration for hire (yeah) and I realize that I need to cover some legal issues on the order form that will cover copyright infringement (we won't retouch copywritten images without permission) and our limits of liability. I have a book of business and legal forms for photographers but it doesn't have anything for retouching images.

Is there a book of forms for Retouchers somewhere? Or does anybody have a form that they will allow me to modify? (is that a question I should even ask?)

Oh, one other question... what about those old wedding pictures of great grandparents that you know were taken professionally but have no copyright information on them?

I'm really looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you in advance.

Sarah

Just make some sort of disclaimer.

I think you should work in incriments of what you can modify and redistribute, so you can get a better idea of what to use.

First of all, there's stock photos, depending on where you get them from, they can have all sorts of varying rules on how you can use them.

There's the Creative Commons license, which is pretty long to read but essentially you can use it, but not for profit.

There's public domain photos, especially really old ones that would be perfect for editing and beefing up your portfolio. I forget how old an image has to be before its automatically in the public domain , but i'm just going to say 70, and hope that you don't quote me on that.
