: I have been approached by a publisher to make calendars, postcards, posters. All of which will be as ‘My photo art’. Not per say ‘Madonna’ etc. Their name would be in small type somewhere.
: The publishing will NOT be advertising a company or produce. Only as my photo art.
: Do I have the right to publish as my art as mentioned, since I have already printed 2 or 3 books using them?….thank you. BG
Dear Mr. Gehring,
There are multifaceted risks, as I see it. Without a careful legal investigation it could cost you if you make a mistake. I don't see it as black and white. If law were that clear there would be no need for lawyers. I like answering questions here and I really don't want to use this forum a an advertizing front. Give me a call if you like. I may very well also discuss fees. I don't picture this as a BIG legal fee, just more or less a Reality Check®.
