Hi Jeff, caught your blog via the Youtube "I have a right to sell my art". I ran into this problem via Zazzle about rights and copyright ownership. I tried to sell a photo of a Stormtrooper that I had taken with my camera but because the character is licensed and owned by someone else I was asked to remove it. I had the same problem with the Needle in Seattle, you can't sell images of it and I was asked to take down those too. I believe the same copyright applies to the Eiffel Tower but only when it's illuminated at night. Personally I find that the whole copyright issue is confusing. Intellectual Property and celebrity is a minefield. Electronic Arts the videogame publisher had a court case brought against them by a military helicopter manufacturer for having one of their vehicles in the Battlefield games. They tried to defend it via the First Amendment right but ended up settling out of court.
