Hey everyone!

I'm just getting started in my tee-shirt business but before I get in too deep, I've been trying to figure out if I can use certain images legally on my shirts.

For instance, I want to use an image of an athlete that has been altered by a graphic designer. The target market for this shirt knows upon looking who the person is, but most of the defining characteristics have been touched up slightly so no logos, names or numbers are showing. Is that going to be ok to sell?

Additionally, with respect to team names and logos, I'm aware those are off limits, but I've seen shirts with team names in a slightly different font. What are the guidelines in these situations? Can someone please help me out while I try in vain to find a good intellectual property lawyer?

Thanks in advance for your help!
