    I have bought several Norman Rockwell Paint by numbers over the years. Here is my question. If I print off pictures of his prints on and then color them to make a crayon quilt. Do you think that will be a copy right violation? I would not be selling this quilt. It would be displayed in my living room.
    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    I wouldn't worry about it if you are not selling it.

    as long as you do not sell it, then you should be ok, but it does not hurt to write and ask about it..even prints have copyright so you never know these days!

    You bought the patterns for your use. If it were me I wouldn't worry about it. I think the copyright rules people take too seriously. You bought it to use as you please as long as you don't sell it.

    Same here. If it's for your own personal use, I'd just do it and enjoy. Reselling it though would be an issue.

    No problem to reproduce/change/manipulate/ as much as you want if for personal use. No selling or copying to give or sell, but you can claim/sell the change process but not the image.

    If you do not make it for profit then it should be fine. Copyrights are in place so people do not take a well known name or picture and make a fortune off of them giving none to the person that came up with the idea or spent the time painting or drawing it.
