HELLOOOO lovely lovely people! I have done a few forum searches on this subject but nothing's really similar enough to give me a good enough answer to my question, so here goes.

When I was practicing my bookbinding skills, I bought a bunch of notebooks to bind into leather. And I want to know whether I can legally sell them or not?

The books themselves are paperback and have photos on the front and back covers and on the insides of the covers is the website for the notebooks (possibly seems like a similar brand to cath kidston) and the inside of the back cover has a copyright notice for the stationery company and information of the photographer who provided the images for the covers.

I don't plan on covering these notices up at all, but want to know if I can sell these legally? I would be listing them as re-bound notebooks, NOT as my own photography on the covers.. where do I stand?

Any help is MUCHLY appreciated! ♥

I would sell them. There will always be someone around to say you can't sell even the leather unless you pay a copyright tribute to the dang cow.

Be sure to put a disclaimer saying you bought this notebook from ***** and this is their photographs on the cover not yours, and that you are not affiliated with them in any way. Smiley
