    My son’s adventure guides group would like to use this image on their t-shirts. Would it be possible to get permission to reproduce it?

    Thank you!

    @Liz Farris: you would have to contact Gentle Giant, the manufacturers of this. The flying monkeys are in the public domain since they’re in the book, but this looks like its probably based on the 1939 movie so the look/feel is probably owned by whoever owns MGM which means getting permission would probably be next to impossible.

    Warner Brothers currently owns the MGM Wizard of Oz copyrights. I found that out when they decided to harass my Zazzle store. Thankfully, that got cleared up in my favor.

    Could I request permission to use the flying monkey image above in a company blog?

    @Alyson: Unfortunately, that is not my image so I don’t have the ability to give you permission (I believe my use here constitutes fair use).

    If you need permission, I’d recommend contacting Gentle Giant…their website is at http://www.gentlegiantltd.com/
