Is it legal to scan a baseball card I own and use it as an avatar?

I don't think it technically is, but I don't know who would prosicute it. Just like how it's technically illegal to cover a song, but most bands feel honored when they're covered, so they won't prosecute it. So second the "Go for it" :grin:

I have some postcards I would like to enlarge but Walgreens is asking if I own the copyright.

Here are some examples:

They only do that to cover their own asses...It is technically illegal, so the stores don't want anything to do with that. it's like copying music from a CD.

But if I were to list cards for sale, like cards and pictures are listed on ebay and other sites, then it is ok to scan and show them on line?

Can I keep and share a portfolio of items I have sold?

I can't figure out how it could be illegal, but just do it. Who would care? Anyway, you could probably find a picture of the card somewhere on the net already, right?

It is illegal because, technically, they are making money from copying the pictures. If you did it yourself, it would not be illegal.

Only if they are the originals. If you are making money from copies, it is illegal.

He just wants to own it and use it as his avatar.
