: Hi. Just wondering if someone can please tell me if I can use a drawing by Leonardo Da Vinci as a logo for a University Assignment? I will be obtaining the image from a book. Would the situation be different if it was a real project?
Although an image may be in the public domain, the copying of the image from a copyrighted work can be an infringement of the reproduction's copyright.
