t shirt with Johnny Cash on it
« on: 03-13-17 at 08:37 am »

If someone made a t-shirt with the image of Johnny Cash on it. Would they then have to pay a copyright fee?

Depends on where the image was acquired. Every photo of johnny has a copyright owner. If that image was copied, then the copyright owner has a monopoly on the $$$ made with the image.

Additional, publicity rights are something to be aware of. The image of johnny cash might require permission from whoever owns those rights (estate, relatives).
