I took the old Rosie the Riveter poster from WWII (public domain!) and modified it. The mods are public domain also (so says I!!! Grin). I want to share them, and didn't know where to put this thread (mods -feel free to move it if I'm in the wrong place...  Tongue)

Anyway - spread them around - use them to link to your etsy shop or whatever!!! Make buttons!! Have fun with them!!!  Cheesy





I'll make more if people want them.... Suggestions as to what she should say?

Brilliant idea! I wonder if there are any other WWII posters that would look good with 'handmade' variations?

There might be... I can look. I chose Rosie because she is 'iconic'. I used her as part of a banner for my online altered art supply store [in the 'You Can Alter It' version] and then made the 'Buy Handmade' version just for fun!

I can see what other WWII posters I have that would work.... Or for that matter WWI. [Anyone for 'I want you to buy handmade!'Huh]

Your realize that your altering and using licensed martial.. and if you haven't applied for permission to use this material.. You as well as Craftster are liable and could face some charges..

I would step lightly..

Actually, ACCORDING TO THE two sites you listed, it is likely not licensed or if it did have copyright ['not likely'], it was not renewed. No third party lawsuits have ever been filed for the use the image as of 2005.

But it gets better. The National Archives, which is where this comes from, says the use is 'unrestricted'. Sounds like PD to me. In fact, the National Archives Website says as much:

Quote
May I reproduce images from your web site?

The vast majority of the digital images in the Archival Research Catalog (ARC) are in the public domain. Therefore, no written permission is required to use them. We would appreciate your crediting the National Archives and Records Administration as the original source. For the few images that remain copyrighted, please read the instructions noted in the "Access Restrictions" field of each ARC record.

[From the National Archives FAQs: http://www.archives.gov/faqs/ under 'Copyright'.]

In other words, if there are restrictions, the National Archives will say so. The listing of 'Unrestricted' under "Access Restrictions" for the 'Rosie' image means it is part of the 'vast majority...in the public domain.'

The National Archive IDs for the 'We Can Do It!' (commonly known as 'Rosie the Riveter') image are:

ARC Identifier 535413 / Local Identifier 179-WP-1563

http://www.archives.gov/research/arc/

Go to the above URL and put '535413' into the search box. Click on the only listing: 'We can do it!'. The 'Details' tab will tell you the use is unrestricted and the 'Digital Copies' tab will get you the image.

Thanks for your concern, but I try to very very careful about what I use and to insure that the images in my collage sheets and altered artwork are PD so that they can be copied and sold.

If you want a physical copy of the image [a print] from the Archives, you will likely have to pay. Not because it's copyrighted but to pay for the printing.
