    Are these bonded pairs or juveniles? Any chance of getting a picture of the parents? As much as I like the picture in the first post, most lightnings I've seen don't have that striking of a pattern.

    You do know that your designer choosing copyrighted Google images doesn't absolve you from guilt, right? Fair use applies to non-commercial and news work, but this is clearly a commercial endeavor.

    Were your Maroons aquacultured by ORA? ORA seems to have mastered the ability to breed Maroons looking like their lightning bolts are in the same position where you'd expect to see normal white bands on a normal Maroon, whereas other breeders are producing ones with lightning bolts showing up in odd positions on their bodies.

    Actually that work would be considered transformative under the MDCA. Artist are allowed to use copyright protected images in new works even for commercial gain. Even more so there is a law we're artists can use original very well known works (think actual comic panels from a Batman comic) in art and sell it as long as they only use that one piece once and for a single original art piece (meaning you can't make duplicates of it).

    The commercial gain here is not for the art though. Seriously...get permission for this type of commercial use or find another image.

    It's only fair that images be protected. While I am sure you meant no harm @The Coral Dudes the image has been removed. Please have permission to use images in the future. I responded in the public because this has become a public issue.

    Thank you.

    Not to hijack further, but here's a pretty easy to understand definition of transformative work - http://fairuse.stanford.edu/overview/fair-use/what-is-fair-use/ - this wasn't "transformative" in any sense.

    Have designers seek out images with permissions, get 'em in writing, and pay a license that you negotiate. You expect to be paid for the fish that are sold, right? Photographers should get paid for their work too...

    Carry on with the Lightning Maroon sale!
