This answer was rated:

I did an original portrait of Elvis Presley and would like to know if it is legal to make copies of that art and sell them.
JA: What written documentation do you have?
Customer: I only have my original art - what do I need?
JA: Have you talked to a local attorney? Has anything been filed in court?
Customer: Not yet.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney. I would be happy to provide assistance. Please give me a moment to formulate a response.

The rights to use the likeness of Elvis Presley (including in original artwork) is currently held by Authentic Brands Group. In order to sell copies of the artwork you would have to contact the company and negotiate the purchase of a license to use his likeness for your artwork.
