coloring books are a great source for tracing!

also, this copyright biz, a whole lot of us would be in trouble for using comics and other found art objects to make stuff.

good point! where do we stand legally? say if we use an old comic to make fridge magnets, can the comic company or artist kick off?

I was hoping you could share other things you've made with your shrinky dink paper... I just bought 4 packs of it thru the american science & surplus site, and need to make a lot of x-mas gifts...thanks!

Maybe I'm stating the obvious, but so long as they're not being re-sold, you can do anything you want. If you*are* reselling the marble magnets that use copyrighted images you have to pay licensing to the copyright owner (for example: to Bettie Page's estate if you want to sell mm's with pics of her).

Where it gets grey is: are you reproducing the image over and over to make a bunch of the same magnets? That's where you have to be careful. Are you clipping images straight from the source (like an old magazine?) and using them just once, to make a bunch of individual magnets? That's a safer bet, even for resale.

The copyright issue only comes up if you are planning on making money off the design. In any case like that, I always recommend talking to a lawyer. It's expensive, but not as expensive as being sued. Tongue

It is my understanding of copyright law that any copying, whether or not you sell the copy or otherwise are planning to make money off of it, can be a violation of copyright law, as copyright law can encompass the reproduction of material whether or not the reproduction makes money for the copyright infringer.

However, whether the copyright laws apply to a work at all depend on the date on which the work was created.  Some really old works, like those I think created prior to 1923, are in the public domain, I think.  

There is a "fair use" exception to the copyright law which is pretty murky but holds that if people are using the reproductions for educational purposes, for example, they cannot be found liable for copyright infringement.  The stuff I have read does not say that the exception covers reproductions that are for personal use (think about, for example, making a copy of a rented video -- I don't think we're supposed to do that, even if we don't sell the copy, as it still potentially can take royalties away from the person(s) who made the movie).

I am not an expert on this at all, but I assume that nobody would probably find it worth the expense of suing someone who merely reproduces the copyrighted work in order to make a magnet or some other sort of item for her personal use that she is not selling.

There are many websites that discuss copyright laws and will no doubt be better than whatever I have just said. (Copyright law is in Title 17 of the United States Code).  The Library of Congress and Cornell University's law school have websites that discuss the topic.
