: : : I want to take some images of soft toys which are characters from a recent movie. The images are obviously mine, but I want to add captions to the images and use these in a training course.
: : : Would I be breaking any kind of copyright on the branding or characters which these soft toys represent?
: : : I would not intend to try to re-represent any storyline, only to put the characters in a different context.
: : : I guess the characters are _not_ People in law, and understand that even a normal person does not have ownership of their own image (eg the Elvis family case).
: : : Thoughts on this would be much appreciated.
