What is the name of your state, Ryan?Hi,
If I create an illustration image based on a photo I found online, would it breach the copyright of the photo? What if I don't copy exactly. Such as change the original color, add different object(s), or remove some of the object(s) on my illustration.
There are several factors a court looks at when deciding whether a new work is a derivative of the original (which would require permission from the copyright holder) or transformative (which would be viewed as a fair use of copyrighted material).Hi quincy,
Thanks for your information. You mentioned 'transformative'. I am wondering what degree of modifications would acknowledge it as 'transformative'.
For example, if I create an illustration from a photo in which a woman is sitting at a cafe, in order to become 'transformative', the pose of the woman in the picture has to be changed as well as the clothes colors? Or the pose is OK to copy?
The collage by Koons in this case was found to be a transformative work. Koons added creative value and new meaning to the original advertising art that was created by Blanch.I zoomed in on the image and see now that the second pair of feet from the left are from the Blanch art.
