    It’s kind of a grey area, but I don’t think it’s that bad since you’re only using it for personal use. If you were making some kind of profit off of it, then it would be wrong.

    I would contact the couple and the artist to ask for permission first.  The whole “they put it on the internet, they should’ve known” argument is the intellectual property equivalent of “she wore that skirt to that bar…”

    How do you know they paid for it? Maybe they copied it from someone else?

    I say go for it.

    Although reading everyone else’s comments, maybe emailing them is the best thing..maybe they’ll give you their blessings and then you don’t have to worry about a lawsuit or guilt.

    It wouldn’t bother me at all, it’s for personal use, I really don’t see the issue.

    Have to say I agree with if you want to hide it, the internet is not the place.  Sorry but if its there and it works for you, I would not feel guilty at all.  You didnt “steal” it… I wouldnt feel guilty at all… Maybe I dont have a conscious but really I dont see the problem

    I’d email them if at all possible and ask them if they minded (and maybe they would send you the original copy). If not, I would use it as inspiration but create my own. That’s just me though.

    @smith2be:  So if I walk by your house, see that you have a very nice television and surmise from that fact that you’re well off and can afford another it’s okay for me to break in and steal it?  Even if the T.V. was a gift and you’re actually living paycheck to paycheck?

    You don’t know what the artist’s situation is, and even if she does have plenty of money, that’s irrelevant.  What matters is that she created a specific item in exchange for compensation.

    So you actually copied it from the artist’s website?

    I would totally use it!!!

    just don’t post your version online anywhere!  duh.  keep it to yourself and don’t show anyone besides guests – like don’t hand out to the hotel staff or anything.  I wouldn’t worry too much!  those places that make them have to realize this happens.
