If your photo's are too good, Wal-Mart may not print them

I like to think I take some pretty good pictures, but I've never had a photo lab refuse to print my photos because they thought a professional took them. According to this story in the San Diego Union Tribune:

One of the benefits of digital photography – the fact that amateurs can take better-looking photos and doctor them using photo-editing software – is also becoming a bane. Photofinishing labs increasingly are refusing to print professional-looking photographs taken by amateurs.

The reason: Photofinishers are afraid of infringing on professional photographers' copyrights.
