I'm a big Dilbert fan and I'm contemplating making a Dilbert wall quilt for my office. I would draw my own freehand design, based on Dilbert's image.

Can anyone tell me if this is legal? For all Dilbertlike reasons, I don't want to get in hot water.....

What do you think?

Probably not. I'm sure it's a copyrighted image. And if you were using it at home I wouldn't see a problem. But taking it to your business is a little different. Maybe make something else for the office?

I think it's only illegal if you sell it, but for personal use it's OK. Even if it's in your office, it's not something you are going to earn money from.

Thanks for your responses. I think I'll give it a shot. My design might not resemble Dilbert closely enough to get me in trouble anyway. It will probably come out looking like his deranged cousin. Which is something Dilbert would totally appreciate. Ha, ha, ha, I'm crackin' myself up.

Thanks again.
