Here I am again!
In several kits I saw little teddybears in all sorts.
But is that allowed?
Or are these artists just gambling no one will notice?
My suggestion would be to check the Designer TOU's on those kits and see if they are crediting and who they are crediting.
There are Many CU items out there that most of the designers use.
Just do a search for Commercial Use Srapbooking and you will be amazed at how many sites there are!
There are also a lot of things personal and CU sold that are not really ok but yes lots just hope they get away with it or don't know any better or do know and choose not too. You even see CU sold that has to be from extracted stock photos and it is questionable where they get their stock. The safest bet is stick to what you are sure of.
Thanks for your answers.
Have to figure out lot of things I guess ;-)
But (here I am again...) suppose I have a license from someone that allows me to use her elements in my scrapkit, how can I be sure?
Is it enough to mention this license in a TOU if she doesn't need credits for it?
Another thing: sometimes I see with a CU TOU: allowed to resize, recolor, but you cannot rename it.
But everything in the kit gets my name, do I have to leave her name in my kit then?
Sorry if I ask so much, but I'm just starting and want to do it the proper way!

Wow! I learned a lot of information from this thread. I am also inquiring about photographing objects to use in kits as long as it does not have a registered name on the item. I know it is safest to use items that are more than 100 years old. I would like to photograph some items I received from my grandmother to use in kits, such as jewelry, makeup compact, doilies, handkerchiefs. I am also wondering about plain Christmas ornaments that I have purchased through the years, such as glass bulbs, plastic angels, etc. They have no identifiable name on them. Are they okay to photograph and use in kits that you sell? I know not to use any registered name ornaments such as Barbie, Disney, and Precious Moments.
