: If I were to use lyrics from a song, including the artists name, put them on greeting cards and sell them, would I need permission from the artist and have to pay royalties?
Dear Karen Marie,
There are things that you can do, but much less when you are going commercial. On the face of what you have said, if I represented the artist, I think I'd try to stop you or make yu pay.
