Art Copyright Coalition
Rosenstiels is a founder member of the Art Copyright Coalition artcopyright.net which has been established to protect the interests of artists, publishers and other copyright holders around the world, and which campaigns vigorously on a global basis to uncover and prosecute copyright infringement.
Creativity has to be protected and Rosenstiels continuously monitors the market throughout the world.
As a member of the Art Copyright Coalition we will always make sure that the rights of our artists are respected and will pursue infringers anywhere in the world.
Copyright infringement is a `STRICT LIABILITY` crime.
Liability falls on everyone involved, irrespective of whether they knew the goods in question were infringing or otherwise. The excuse `I did not know` is not a defence.
Any individual or company dealing in infringing goods is therefore liable to punishment and damages, including the perpetrator, any wholesaler or reseller right the way through to the retailer and even to the end consumer. International property infringement in certain jurisdictions is a criminal as well as a civil offence.
Rosenstiels takes its environmental responsibilities with the greatest seriousness.

We take a great care as well in selecting the companies we are working with, and the efforts they are putting into the preservation of the environment. We believe that by purchasing certified products it will have a positive impact on our forests and the wider environment globally and help reduce our carbon emissions. We ensure that all of our printers and paper suppliers understand and comply with our paper sourcing policy. We aim to use only Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified materials on our products wherever possible by 2025. We are working towards meeting these targets.
All of of our papers for offset litho are sourced only from FSC accredited companies who are fully committed to utilising raw materials from well-managed renewable sources and our principal paper supplier has achieved the ISO14001 Environmental Management Standard.
Supporting certified forests helps combat climate change.
Our principal suppliers for printing are FSC certified and operate under a forceful written environmental management policy designed specifically to minimise waste generation, pollution and the use of environmentally unfriendly products.
They are committed to “environmental printing” whereby they strive to reduce their carbon footprint across the entire company. This is done by a variety of ways including the use of vegetable based inks, recycling cleaning solvents and waste and offsetting any remaining carbon emissions.
Paper and recycling facts:
In Europe large areas of the continent have seen a forest boom that means today more than two-fifths of Europe is tree-covered. Between 1990 and 2015, the area covered by forests and woodlands increased by 90,000 square kilometres - an area roughly the size of Portugal.
Forests cover almost a third of France, due in part to increased protection and a decline in farming. Over the last century, trees flourished as residents left the countryside for life in the city, and intensive agriculture meant less land was needed for farming.
Although the re-wilding process has slowed, the area of land covered by trees continues to expand. France is fourth most forested country in Europe, after Sweden, Finland and Spain.
Sweden has strong protections against deforestation and trees cover around 70% of the surface area, similar to Finland, but not all of the forests are natural. Many of Europe’s forests are managed to produce wood to make paper, or timber for construction, or as fuel. As trees in those forests are felled, more are planted, and European plantations expand by an area the size of 1,500 soccer pitches every day.
Forests used in the paper making industry are well managed and sustainable with certification schemes such as the Forest Stewardship Council and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification ensuring that paper comes from sustainable forest sources.
Paper is also one of the world’s most recycled materials, and is one of the few materials that is able to be completely recycled. The European recycling rate for paper and cardboard continues to lead the world and the last figures in 2019 show that this reached 85.8%. A report by the Swedish Royal Institute for Technology stated that reading a physical newspaper can consume 20% less carbon than viewing the news on line.
How many times can paper be recycled?
The average number of times your printer paper can be recycled is about five to seven times. After that, the fibers will become too short and can’t be made into copier paper anymore. From that point, it can be made into more of a paper paste and can be used for things like newspaper or egg cartons. earth911.com - Dec 3 2018.
