Since The World In Faces photo project got viral, the photos were used without the author permission in the internet countless amount of times. Every time it was frustrating. Every time it took a lot of time and effort to remove them from breaching international law websites. Not anymore. In addition to a copyright status in Australia The World In Faces is now registered as a trade mark that is protected worldwide. The World In Faces photo project by Alexander Khimushin also has an official government registered copyright status in Russia that is applicable worldwide as well.
Please ALWAYS ask the author, it is that simple. Alexander is happy to share his photographs with mass media, however, unsolicited use of the project pictures will not be tolerated.
