Copy stills from tv programmes and films and then make up novelty id cards and sell them at a profit on ebay?

Thanks

Under copyright law it is an offence to perform any of the following acts without the consent of the owner:
Copy the work.
Rent, lend or issue copies of the work to the public.
Perform, broadcast or show the work in public.
Adapt the work.

--- I guess that's a yes then Smile

Seriously, you would need consent from the copyright owners (the TV company would be able to help you with that one) and even if they agreed they are likely to expect you to pay, (probably a royalty fee on every card sold).
