Re: Arthur Waite/ Pamela Coleman Smith Cards

Andy and Nick- Wow , thank you so much for all this information- what an amazing amount of work you've both done! Sincere apologies for not replying more promptly- I've been in Manchester and away from my PC since Thursday and have only just seen this. I'll contact the address you've provided me wit...

Re: Arthur Waite/ Pamela Coleman Smith Cards

I'll try your suggestion and apply for an Orphans Work License, thanks for that link! I went through my twenty-four illustrations, and discovered they contain a total of 160 individual cards, (ouch, if the charge is for each one separately.) Since some cards are used more than once, I'll need to fin...

Arthur Waite/ Pamela Coleman Smith Cards

Hello, Andy- A similar sort of question was asked of you several years ago- you answered it in some depth, and my enquiry relates to that same topic. https://www.copyrightaid.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1073&p=2349&hilit=rider+waite#p2349 My question differs slightly: I'm concerned about the cop...

Re: Postcard Copyright- Museum, or the Artist?

Thanks for your help, Andy. :) It proved to be too complicated, so I've gone with a simpler option- an Edwardian postcard with a photo on it of a stage actress in costume. I did find this information on a similar postcard of around the same date, (same actress) saying it's believed to now be in the ...

Postcard Copyright- Museum, or the Artist?

Hello, Andy- I am hoping to include photo collages as illustrations in with the novel I'm working on. A vintage postcard I'd like to use was published in 1943 by the Museum of Natural History in Belgium. They printed a series of postcards of prints in their collection... birds, painted by Hubert Dub...

Can I mention a drug by licensed name?

In my novel, one of my characters says she's taking Prozac (she isn't) as a way to cope with her tedious and much-hated office job. I'm probably being overly cautious, but pharmaceutical companies are very protective of their products and I'm not sure how Eli Lilly would be about me using the name o...

Thanks so much for all that information, Andy- it's very reassuring. Copyright law seems to be a bit of a minefield, (at least it is for me) and I've spent hours researching, but was still unsure if I was in the wrong or not. It's good to have clarification about the fabrics, especially- your help i...

Worried about Infringing Copyright with Photo Illustrations

Hello, and I'm very glad to have found this forum... I have become very confused about the laws covering this! I am currently involved in writing a novel, and I want to include black and white photos, taken by myself. These will be composite photos- a background, with other images layered on top usi...
