    Can I use my coworker's personal artwork for work purpose?

    Thanks, I would agree based on reasonable logic that the coworker owns the copyright. But I was clear with my lawyer that the coworker's role is a testing engineer, that has nothing to do with his artwork. Thank you both for the input, I will check with my company again.

    Can I use my coworker's personal artwork for work purpose?

    Could you elaborate why the legal counsel is wrong? From what I understood, if the artwork is related to the company's product, it is owned by the company.

    Can I use my coworker's personal artwork for work purpose?

    Thanks! I am based in Minnesota. The artworks are 3D simulated pictures and videos. My coworker created those from scratch, those are for a work project that I am leading. So if he gave those artworks to me, and even reviewed those with me to make sure those are what I want, I assume there...

    Can I use my coworker's personal artwork for work purpose?

    A coworker is very talented in creating artwork, but his role at company has nothing to do with it. He created some artwork using his own time for me, and those are completely free and out of his goodwill. Could there be any issue for me to use these artwork for work purpose?

    What if my friend also asks other US citizens, his wife/another friend/relative the same questions and get feedback and opinions. If it is work, then he has to hire and pay those people, right? Or does that make it “not work”?

    The definition of "work" on H1B

    Thanks for all the advices, it’s good to hear both sides of the argument. I think this topic itself is an gray area and depends on situations. My friend understands and he asks me to tell him what I can do or cannot do so it doesn’t interfere/violate my H1B. So here is what I plan to draw the...
