Hey Conceptart.org peeps, hope everyone is well and productive!
I have a legality question that I don't know the answer to but am hoping that there are some pro's or someone in the know floating about these here forums that could help me out.
I've been commissioned by a musician to do a CD cover for one of his band's singles. He would like the design to include a great deal of flags from countries all over the world but he is a little worried that there is the need to secure a permission to use a flag design. My question is, does anyone know if there is a legal requirement to seek permission to use a flag of a country design or is it considered royalty free/public domain and can be used and altered with permission?
I've never had to, nor have I, considered this before and would like to know what the official stand point is so that I can put my client's and my own mind to rest.
Thanks in advance folks.
