Printing famous people

Where can I find law and guidelines about printing famous people on t-shirts? Whether they are pictures or drawings.

Local screen printer denied my request saying that he could not print biggie on a shirt.

You can NOT do this without permission period. Your printer is right.
I see it all the time are these people getting permission?
People shoplift all the time, some of them get caught. People steal shirt images all the time, if they steal from the wrong person and get caught by someone who has more money and lawyers, they usually go out of business, and if they were a sole proprietorship, into personal bankruptcy.
Yikes it's not worth it at all! I'll get around with out those designs for now.. Anyone know where I can find good copyright templates to begin to send out?
