You can seek permission to copy the two paintings from artist Arthur Benjamins- Arthur has just rejoined this forum after a break so you should be able to get hold of him.

Well that one I can answer- we don't allow the use of our logo for stuff like this.

The plans for painting the scooter as described above seem to be likely to run into a whole host of copyright issues with artists, photographers, Clubs and others, should the work be direct copies of the samples shown. An airbrush artist should be able to do their own work guided by the reference material.

The use of the Bluebird in flight 'logo' could be the most costly to defend, as it is the one which could go to the Courts. [There are pages on the inter-web to do with this subject alone.]

It must be my eyes, or the shadow on the embossed plaque - what is the year on the bottom dateline?

completley no support from here what so ever then. im not making any money out of this, this is for my own personal obsession, the images ive shown are freely available on the internet. i believe i can use the 2 paintings in question as i do own both prints which i purchased from the bluebird cafe, but as stated above i have asked arthur if i could use it. i thought you guys might jump at the chance for a bit of free advertising, as i and many others appreciate what the team are doing and what you have achieved so far. a fitting tribute would have been a nice reply, as regards to the date on the coin, what is the problem there, i cant see nothing wrong with that at all,

It's not about support - it's just one of those potential minefields that crops up again and again. It can get a little contentious so we tend to steer a course around it. I'm sure your project will turn out brilliantly but we can't say go for it with regard to other people's copyright or intellectual property. The only thing that we (the Bluebird Project) have a say on is our own images and our logo that we don't allow to be used anywhere so it's not personal. Still the very best of luck with your project, though.

thanks bill, that means alot to me, ive planned on doing this tribute for many years just never got round to it. i understand not using your logo that is one of the main reasons why i asked in the first place, if there is anything else i could use as an idea i would appreciate it. when the scooter is finished i intend to do a photo shoot at coniston in january so my time scale is very short
