I teach high school art. What I tell the students is that they can draw
something that is a photograh but not someone else's artwork. I also clarify
this by not allowing photographs of artwork. There is always some character
or logo from TV, the movies or advertisements that they want to include. I
tell them they can't include a photograph of mickey mouse. Besides not being
legal, it is someone else's drawing.
Sorry I haven't contributed more lately but I'm writing my thesis and don't
have too much extra time but try to skim the articles.
Hope everyone is having a great summer. Eileen
