  WalMart won't print your professional-looking digital photos
Don't get too good at taking pictures. If your photog skills increase and WalMart believes your photos might have been taking professionally, they won't print them for fear of infringing on professional photographers' copyrights and having to pay.
"We can't release the pictures to you without a copyright release form signed by the photographer," the clerk replied, according to Helmick.

The clerk said the photos looked like a professional had taken them, Helmick said. And no matter how much Helmick protested that she, an amateur, had snapped the shots of her son, she said the clerk wouldn't budge.
