I've seen a few posts about this but none specific to my situation. I am producing a CD and plan on taking a photograph of a few relevant items for the cover. One of those items I picked up at a yard sale...in a margarine container ('I can't believe it's not butter'). The setting was perfect for my concept.
Is it okay, in the eyes of the law, to use the image of this container or would I need to contact the manufacturer to request permission?
Many thanks for any input.
