Hi I have a question and I was wondering if you might know the answer. I am new to TpT and want to create a couple products that have famous art included in them. I noticed that you have some products that use famous art pieces as well. Did you find that you needed to get permission because of copyright issues? Thanks I appreciate it!

We have avoided using famous art because of copyright infringement. Our Norman Rockwell project is the one exception. We really wanted our students to see these paintings and learn about the connection to Roosevelt's Four Freedoms Speech. We just couldn't figure out an adequate substitution for the real paintings.
