Spend the few dollars it will


Spend the few dollars it will cost to consult with an attorney. You’re placing yourself at considerable financial risk by re-working copyright protected materials. If you had handed your client a contract which specified that he had obtained clearances for all the materials, and he signed it without discussion, you could (probably) claim in court that you had no knowledge of information to the contrary.

But you can’t claim that now. You do have knowledge that what you’re about to undertake is in violation of copyright. So you’re breaking the law with your eyes wide open.

Seek the advice of an attorney, and follow it. No job is worth getting involved in a legal proceeding.
