I'm not sure if this is the right site to post this kind of question but I have no idea where to look for this kind of thing otherwise.
Does anyone know of or know where I can find the rules concerning selling clipart?  I'm an vintage/antique book collector and I've amassed quite a bit of clipart from the pages of my beauties that I'd love to share with the world.  I'd be more than happy to give them up for free but if I could make a penny or two on my posessions then, well, where's the harm in that?
So if you, or a specific website have the rules concerning copyright I'd be much abliged.

I would think each book would have to be researched individually to determine if the copyright was renewed or not - I would not assume by it's age that it wasn't.

I'm only guessing here, but I would think for those images not copyrighted you would be on firmer legal ground if you sold a collection or compilation of them rather than singles.

If you are in the US, the copyright office in Washington (phone number was on the site somewhere) may be able to answer your question.

It might be better to offer the images for free (retains the spirit of copyright law - regardless of the current status of the books) on a website that has advertising (Yahoo, Google or other affiliate), but again, you probably should ask someone with specific knowledge about copyright law.
