Making art prints for your room (Jackie)

Greetings Jackie and all,

How "legal" do you want to be? Making art prints for
your room from digital images you find online goes
beyond "Fair Use" as I am assuming you intend to use
them for more than one class and for more than one
year. (copyright fair use guide lines are very easy to
find online -- and links have been posted several

If you want to be 100% legal. Email the sites for
permission to print the images - especially living
artists. For dead guys - there are many print sources
available that are very affordable. By the time you
print off a large poster you could have close to the
cost of a similar print from Art Image Publications -
when you consider the cost of ink and laminiating
film. You are fairly safe printing off images from
long dead guys - but some museums get very touchy
about you printing off images in their collections (as
they only offer black and white images for study). If
you want Mona Lisa - go ahead and make a copy - the
Louvre will not come after you.

I do have links to public domain information on my
site....I am just too lazy right now to find them for
you...besides, I am suppose to be getting dinner
