Default Got a question bout bottle cap images

My dh and I keep getting into this "argument" about my making bottle cap images. He thinks I'm going to get in trouble for grabbing non watermarked, royalty free images off the internet, reproducing them and making the images. Like I'm just some big time image thief who makes thousands of dollars off my $2.00 images...LOL

So I'd like to here your thoughts on it. It would be great if I could come back with some information from you guys!

thanks!

Default Re: Got a question bout bottle cap images

i recently got into making bottle cap images myself. have sold a few on my etsy. but i dont list anything that has a known tradmark. like mickey mouse, tinkerbell etc.
i have read on here that etsy does monitor what you post. and if you violate the rules the more chances of you being banned from their site.
i do however post my images that i dont list on my etsy on my fb or myspace. but havent sold any yet.
i dont list these big names because i dont want to lose my account with etsy. but alot of people do it anyway. i guess they think their chances of getting caught are slim. or a slap on the wrist once you violate the first time.

Thanks. The images I use come from websites that give permission to use their images. So I wonder if that is ok. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Okay, so here's the thing...

Are you violating copyright by using images you didn't make?

The short answer is yes. After a quick search on etsy for bottlecap images, here are a few people in violation of copyright:

bieber fever
Dora
Mulan
Princess Tionna
Strawberry Shortcake
Hello, Jacob
Vintage Photos

If you did not take the picture yourself, use a royalty free image (you can purchase these on sites like istockphoto, but even then--they usually have limited uses for things like this, or draw it (digitally or by hand) then you are breaking a copyright law by selling those images even though you cleaned them up and made them all awesome for your bottlecap site. (That means if you are just doing a google/bing/flickr search for princess images and then using the best ones--then you didn't make it yourself)

Here's an example of someone who (I think) is not in violation of copyright:
Christmas Images

It would be like if I went in, took pictures off your personal blog, and turned them into bottlecap images--even though I digitally enhanced them or whatever--it would still be your original photo that I used, and it would *technically* be illegal for me to use it and make money off of it without your permission.

That being said--are the Disney/Nickelodeon police going to come knocking at your door and demand payment/throw you in copyright jail?

Yeah... probably not.
