View Full Version : copyrights and sharing question
10-28-2006, 07:48 PM
Hi I'm a newbie but I have downloaded many of the files that are generously shared on this site. It only seems fair that I return the favor. The question I have is what I can use to make the files and legally share them. I have been making files using clipart from CD's I've purchased or from assorted printing programs. I also have some paperpiecing books that I can scan to use. Are these things I can share or do I have to use original art to make it legal? If I make titles using a ttf are those okay? Please let me know, I am on vacation for the next four weeks and would like to try creating and sharing some files.

Please see the previous question asked regarding this topic. It is also found in the general section.

I asked a very similar question just last week and you will find it and the reply if you type copyright into the seach engine and look for yacolusa as the submitter and you will get your answer.

I did read the previous post and had actually added my question as a reply to it since I was still unclear. I get that company logos and clearly copyrighted materials are not allowed. I also understand that there are gray areas. I just was wondering if anyone had a definate answer on clipart since that is what I am using to make my own files as there is no way I can create my own from scratch. I just don't have that artistic ability. If I go into one of the many printing programs (like you would use on your computer to make a card) and get a .jpg file then make that into a cut or a cut and print file are those something I can share?
Thankyou again in advance,

Well, here is what I do...
If it is clip art that I have found, or have, and I use it to make an individual file, but I didn't purchase the rights to sell the file, then I will just share it. I normally only share FREEWARE graphics......
