    I was just wondering how copyright issues apply to pics that have been altered? I'm talking about cartooning in particular. I want to try cartooning some things, not import cars like this civic (I'm just showing it as an example), but I wanna know at what point the piece becomes my property.

    unless you took the pic or had permission to alter it, it will never become your property, imo

    I understand that and I feel the same way to some extent, but I was just wondering whether there's something with regard to law that pertains to this.

    WHAT IS COPYRIGHT?

    Copyright is a form of protection provided by the laws of the United States (title 17, U.S. Code) to the authors of “original works of authorship,” including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works. This protection is available to both published and unpublished works. Section 106 of the 1976 Copyright Act generally gives the owner of copyright the exclusive right to do and to authorize others to do the following:
