: Can I use a photo that appeared in a magazine that was promoting
: chicken pox vaccinations? It was a "generic" picture of a teddy
: bear with a tear running down it's cheek. The impact of the photo
: would be a good fit for a pamphlet that I would like to
: develop and use. I did not notice any trademark designations.I


: Is this considered intellectual property of the magazine?
: What are the guidelines surrounding the use of a magazine
: photo for pamphlet purposes?
: thank you.

My gut says that there is great risk in copying. It was my belief that the copyright on the magazine would cover the picture. I have not studied new case law that might put some limit on this. There is no risk if you don't copy.
If you copy and are challenged it is expensive
