So I just went over the 25 pages of the copyright thread and didn't find any information on this. I bind books and my local bookstore recently expressed interest in consigning some of them. The thing is, the papers I use to cover my books are often gift wraps with copyrighted designs. For example,
I've used paper with the pattern seen at http://www.luxepaperie.com/sngrivpasibo.html
for endpapers. I've used a bunch of the maps printed by Cavallini &Co. Is it okay to sell books covered with these images? I'm a bit wary. My journals don't look like the paperbacks these companies sell themselves (they are typically coptic bound or hardbound with a cloth spine), but what are the rules surrounding the use of decorative paper?
Additionally, I have a bunch of posters from a museum exhibit on single family homes in austria. I've been cutting them up (they include photos and floor plans) for use on book covers also. Is it safe to assume that I can't sell these either? What do I do?
Any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance
