    Default Pictures of NFL Players - Copyright Issues

    I have drawn a few pictures of NFL players and have been told that this is well within my rights and that I may produce and sell as many originals as i like. However i can not produce any prints unless first licensed by the NFL. My question is this, If i want to use one of my NFL drawings within my business card, therefore not being an item for sale nor profit, am I allowed too? Or could this get me in a huge pile o' crap?

    You were told wrong. As far as copyright is concerned, they're 100% yours. As far as using them for any commercial purpose and that includes selling originals or the prints or using them in your advertisement, there's this right to publicity that these notable figures have, and you're likely to run afoul of it for any of the purposes you expressed.
