I incorporate branded objects into my paintings. Liquor bottles, automobiles, furniture and the like. They are background items, not the central theme of the painting. Do I have a problem?

Dear Kegley2,
 
There is an outside possiblity that there is copyrighted subject matter in a label. Check for a copyright notice. The odds are that even an infringement might not be challenged. Who knows? That's what keeps lawyers in business.

Well for sure don't use a Heinkein bottle. They've hired some enforcement company that sends out cease and desist letters with demands for $.
 
In my opinion you would be better off not using any brand names or anything recognizable.
 
Coke has secondary meaning attached to the shape of their bottle.
