Default Images on bottle caps

What are the rules on selling images on bottle caps, etc. I would love to sell some bows with bottle caps, but I dont want to get in trouble with copy right laws. I also make jewelry and I want to sell twilight Jewelry in the store that I make bows for, but I don't know if that's illegal. I see people selling that kind of stuff all over the internet, but my husband says he thinks it illegal. Help!!

It's illegal, because it is copyright images. I think for personal use may be fine, I'm not for sure on that though.

No doubt it's VERY illegal, but half of the crafters on here and elsewhere are selling the bottle caps on bows and making necklaces out of them AND selling just the images on Ebay. I plan to sell what I make out of them when I get them in. I guess if the makers of Twilight (and any other copyrighted image) wanted to, they could hunt down each and every person and send out C&D letters, but that would take them FOREVER to do that.

The only person I've heard about on here that got "hunted down" was the member who was making jewelry out of USED (and actual) bottle caps from beer bottles.

You have to make the decision.

Thanks ladies. What if I use stickers or scrapbook paper or images that I buy, is that illegal?

I would have to addmit that there is no way that they can track it. I think that if you making them with stickers then you should be fine. I am no expert on this matter.

A person from Harley Davidson contacted me for having bottle cap images of their product on Etsy. I pulled all of my images off of there because a few dollars is not worth a lawsuit.

It is illegal if you do not have permission from the owner of the images. When I first started making bottle caps I saw a pic of a deer on the internet that I wanted to use. I contacted the owner of the pic to get permission to use it. He okayed it but I had to send him some bows which was fine. Now I use pics of my own deer that I have here in our pens.

Places like Disney, etc DO NOT give anyone permission to use their images. People chose to do it illegally and if caught and do not remove their items can be prosecuted. It is not worth the risk to take. You are better off joining a bottle cap yahoo group and learn how to create your own images. Trust me, once you learn how to do them yourself you feel so much better knowing it is your own work and not someone else's. If you need a link to one of the groups just PM me and I will direct you that way.
