: I am creating a series of paintings in which the background is partially covered with various photographs. The main image is that of my own. I intend to display these in shows, galleries and the such. Some of the photos I have retrieved from books and others are from the internet. What are the copywrite laws or limitations concerning such use of these images? Where can I find legal terminology concerning this issue?
There may be risks. Understand what and how do it so you can sleep at night and not worrly. You may not be challenged but who needs to be vulnerable.?
