Image Copyright Concern & Etiquette.. by: Aaron Barnhart

There is no need to acknowledge any artist of a public domain artwork
unless you want to. Furthermore, your transformative use would be
acceptable under copyright law as fair use — a landmark case involved
copyrighted Grateful Dead posters (google Bill Graham Archives v. Dorling
Kindersley Ltd.).

Everyone who self-publishes owes it to themselves to understand the
fast-changing world of fair use. *Reclaiming Fair Use* by Aufderheide and
Jaszi is the best review of this subject. Jaszi has a nice summary of BGA
v. DK on page 7 of this:
