Title: How to Avoid Copyright Problems
Post by: nolan on May 16, 2013, 12:18:22 PM
When working from other peoples photos / paintings you need to change the scene so that the scene becomes original again. There are three classes on Paint Basket TV that show you how to do that. They are:

Painting from Photos (http://www.paintbasket.com/paintbaskettv/online-art-class.php?class=intro-to-landscape-painting---painting-from-photos-177)

Combining Photographs for Painting (http://www.paintbasket.com/paintbaskettv/online-art-class.php?class=combining-photographs-for-painting-189) and

Photo Editing for Artists (http://www.paintbasket.com/paintbaskettv/online-art-class.php?class=photo-editing-techniques-for-artists-267)

If you never want to run into any copyright issues, then I highly recommend that you watch these classes

Just added to another post:

Just to let you know:
As per the section Forum Tech Stuff - Fine Print - Current Registration Agreement, any copyright infringement committed by any of the members of the Forum in the Forum is to the account of the individual committing the infringement and not the Paint Basket.

What happens outside of the Paint Basket is not our responsibility, but I would hate to see any of our member get into trouble. Remember the onus is on you to know the law. One of the biggest problems happens when someone does not like you and reports you through jealousy. Don't take chances.

Because I have commented so many times in various places, and have a section which explains the copyright Law in detail, I personally will not be adding any more comments re copyright in the future.

Nolan, it appears I may have erred by posting a drawing from a catalog cover. It is not for sale, just me doing some practice. have I made a big error? Should I delete it from my portfolio? :help:

I wouldn't panic too much, you are not selling the drawing. What I would do is go and edit the description and add a note saying something like "drawn for practice purposes from XYZ catalog as part of my personal collection"

thanks Nolan. My brain must have been asleep when I posted that. I just didn't think. I appreciate your help.
