Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
What do you intend on using the images and sayings for?
OK, thank you for your response. As we are practising lawyers and do this in our spare time there may be a slight delay in getting back to you as I am in the final day of a complex trial today so may not be out until late. Rest assured that I am dealing with your query and will respond as soon as I can, no later than tomorrow at the latest. Please do not respond to this message as it will just push your question to the back of the queue and you may experience unnecessary delays. Thank you for your understanding
I have looked into your query in more detail but unfortunately it is not something I can assist with. I will therefore ‘opt out’ and a colleague better placed to deal with the nature of your query should hopefully pick this up soon. Please do not reply in the meantime as that will just assign the question back to me and you will experience a delay. Thank you
You can use old sayings as these are very unlikely to be "in copyright". As regards ***** ***** can't use images which are by artists who hold copyright which lasts for 70 years from the death of the artist. You can certainly commission your own images of the people concerned. Note that it's the artistic work itself that can be subject to copyright not the actual likeness of the subject. Happy to discuss further. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am creditd for my time.
