Dear Amy and Sally,
Did you need to obtain copyright permission to illustrate works of art and sell them as black line masters? I am new to TpT and want to share my lesson plans but am unaware of the laws regarding copyright and famous works of art. I have read the information posted on TpT but it mostly deals with clip art and not fine art prints. Do I need to obtain special permission to include color prints of famous works of art in my products?
Our line drawings are simple original interpretations of the masters and are copyrighted by us. We can't say what your color prints would be classified as. You might want to research public domain and free use guidelines (which you can find online.)
