: If I wanted to paint a wall mural for a day care at a college that included several cartoon characters from today (Rugrat's, Blues Clues, etc.) . . . would that be a copyright infringement?
There may be technical problems that even go beyond copyright. It is suggested that you try to get a consent. I would not dare suggest that you take the risk, but if you were challenged, it is unlikely that you would be sued without warning and a judge would not likely deal with you with a heavy hand.
