Reading this thread got me curious in our copyright laws in the US. Since i'm not having to chase any mental patients tonight (not yet at least) I figured i'd read up on ours. In the US as long as it's not being distributed by sale or trade, it's not violating the copyright law. Now looking at Canada's Copyright law it states: It is not an infringement of copyright for any person to reproduce, in a painting, drawing, engraving, photograph or cinematographic work. Maybe this can clear some things up.

Yeah, that's the fair use bit. Unfortunately, when it comes down to actually defining where Fair Use ends and Copyright infringement begins, things get a bit more muddled.

Andy Warhol wasn't selling soup, but Campbell's tried suing him over his painting of their product's can (albeit they later dropped it since it turned out to be good publicity).

A bit old thread but have you found something specific in the laws and how did that story with the receptionist end? Did she get what she deserved?
