Hi, this is my first post, and I hope this is the appropriate place to ask this question...
I would like to include famous quotations on my own original works of art which I plan to sell and profit from. Are there any intellectual property issues I should be aware of here? The quote could be anything from words uttered by a famous personality such as Yogi Berra to a verse or two from a famous poem. I would of course credit the quotation to the appropriate author, but is there anything else I need to do in order to sell my work which contains a quote by another person? Do I need their permission? Does it matter if they're living or deceased?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much.
