Default Photo copyrights

An acquaintance told me she went to a quick-print photo lab, wanting to get a copy made of a family photo that was taken in 1958 or 1959. The photo lab wouldn't do it, because the name of the photographer's studio is on the back of the photo.

She told me the photographer has probably been dead for 40 years.

In any case, is it really illegal for her to get the photo copied?
