I've been thinking about expressing my love for David Bowie (the 1970s versions of him, anyway) on a bag - I was thinking of making one for myself and one for a friend for her birthday.  I was going to scan some photos of him and print them out onto that iron-on transfer paper and use them on a bag (how, exactly, I haven't figured out yet).  Now, I know that if I were doing this and selling them, that's illegal - but is it illegal to use copyrighted photographs on a bag made for personal use?  I've been reading some other entries on this site with concerns about copyright and wanted to check on what y'all think...

this comes to a very fine line... even copyrights have different exceptions... but when it comes to personal use... most of the time...it will be ok... as long as you don't offer to sell it when someone ask if they can get one... this is where you can get in trouble then.... but if an image from a site that has those long policy... read through it... some let you use it for personal use...as long as it is not modified... others don't... the only problem I know of is that you use the image and claim it as your own or put it on display like in a gallery.... thatz where problems can come in... other than that... should be alright... but I know what you mean about the whole thing...
