Here is another Copyright tidbit to chew on. It is legal to use copyrighted items you have legally bought to recreate something, fabrics etc. Here is the kicker...under the First Sale Doctrine.

17 U.S.C. §109(c)*creates a limited exception to a copyright owner’s public display right. Owner of a lawful copy of a copyrighted work can, without permission from the copyright owner, display that copy to viewers present at the place where the copy is located. For example, owner of copy cannot display the copy publicly on a website under this provision.
