: I would like to paint Beatrix Potter in a friend of mine's house and get paid for it. Do I have to worry about the copyright??
Dear Ms. Sims,
It is not clear what you expect to paint. It is not clear whether the are still outstanding rights, though I think there may be. Copyrights are good for life plus 70 year, 95 year at a minimun I think and registration must be made within 100 years of creation.
The facts have to be discussed and risks evaluated and modes of not infringing considered.
