One documentary I was watching took some shots of the Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band album. Then they did some close-ups of the woman in scarlet and purple at the bottom center of the album cover. Since it was a critical piece, I am not sure that they had their permission.
What are the rules about doing documentaries with album covers, artwork, and things of that sort? I do not want to cross any lines, but it would be nice to know what artistic freedoms there are.
you’ve just hit upon a fuzzy grey area with lots of “experts”,attorneys,and grandmothers claiming all kinds of inside knowledge
probably best to read up on “fair use” and the like…then come back and inform us on the state-of-the-mess
Mercy, Zoob. If even the grandmothers can’t figure it out, then what am I going to do? (lol)
