The Richard Avedon Foundation



If you are reading this About Me Page it is probably because you have had an auction canceled by eBay for using copyrighted Richard Avedon images without permission or are attempting to sell an unlawful copy of copyrighted work. We apologize for the inconvenience. However, The Richard Avedon Foundation has a legal obligation to strictly enforce its intellectual property rights and to remove spurious and illegitimate prints from eBay.

We consider any of Avedon�s images that don�t have an identification stamp from his studio and/or his signature to be an unlawful reproduction of copyrighted work.

Mr. Avedon' s images used on other products (lunchboxes, t-shirts, etc.) is strictly forbidden.

Unauthorized posters or posters reprinted without permission are prohibited. A common example is the Nastassja Kinski and the Serpent. 24-1/2 inches by 36 inches is the only legitimate size. The common 16 x 20 poster is a poor quality reproduction.





You may also have had your auction canceled for Keyword Spamming. Keyword spamming involves placing inappropriate words in the seller's title or description to manipulate boolean searchs and divert potential buyers to their own listing.
