a legal question: if i choose to make an old existing statue in lw, how exactly should i handle the things legally? whats up with the copyrights of the original sculptor?

tia.

p.s. this is a very old statue where author is not alive any more (if thats is of any importance).

Be very careful, i have heard that Michelangelo has excellent lawyers...... :D

It only gets problematic if you sell these modells, than you have to take care of the copyright. And to make it more difficult, its different from country to country.

If it's a REALLY old statue, it doesn't matter.

nope, iam not gonna sell the models, just the final image has a potencial to be partially commercial...., uhmm, so i guess the old ladies who are selling mini-copies of the statue have all the copyrights setled? (hehe, will ask those...)
