: I am curious as to what laws apply,if any, to me. I am a florist who would like to add art prints to my catalog. Can I buy these from any wholesaler of prints, and resell them? Or do I have to have pemission from every artist before selling their prints? Surely not.
I like your caution. Here's the freebee. As articles of commerce, there is no restriction even if there is a copyright on what you buy, unless you reprocduce copyrighted works.
Reproductions are copyrightable. I'm not clear on your liablity of the works you buy are infingements.
