Satire publication

Post by Edward2121 »

Hi Guys, hope you can help :lol:

I'm producing a satire newspaper for my local area and I will distribute about 2000 copies each month. I should make a small profit from charging local businesses to advertise in each issue.

Three things I was hoping for help with:

1. Can I use images without permission as long as it's for satirical purposes?

2. If not, how do I get permission to use an image of a celebrity for example and how much should I expect to pay?

3. Would I have to pay more for a high-resolution image suitable for print?

Kind regards, thanks in advance to anyone who might be able to help

You would need to speak to the photographer for permission to use his/her work. I cannot say how much he/she would charge - I guess that would depend on the picture.
