Hi Everyone
I've took some images of candy called "Softmints Ice" product of Cadbury Ltd, but I just did it for testing my studio setup so it wasn't something official.
Now when i checked those images they are looking quite cool and that's where question arise:
* Can i a ask "Cadbury Ltd" if they want to buy high resolution images for one of there products?
* Is it legal to take product photos without the manufactures permission?

Do let me know

here's the quick look for those images

I'm pretty sure it's legal to photograph the product, but to post them online...not entirely sure.
I highly doubt they will sue you for it though, if anything it's free promotion. I also doubt the company will buy your images (I've tried mailing similar companies, never got a response).

I take pictures so quickly, my highschool was "Continuous High".

Nice shots
You won't need a lawyer,

Yes ask Cadbury ltd
yes you can shoot products without the manufactures permission.

But just don't publish them to make money (let'S say those photos are in a art gallery and people pay to visit the gallery). And the big no no changing the logo or brand name. This depends the country you live in also.

Citruspers & lowliferider: thanks for writing

my intentions to put these images on internet is only to showcase my work, nothing else :)
