U.S. Copyright Office – Can I Use Someone Else’s Work? Can Someone Else Use Mine? (FAQ).

In case you were wondering… the link above will give you many answers.

Another note.  If an artist, working for themselves creates an original artwork and sells the physical piece of art, this does not transfer the copyright to the buyer.  The copyright always remains with the creator.  The creator may always license out the use of the image, this is done with a separate contract.  More guidelines for that HERE.
