As I draw near the publishing date of my novel, I have to make sure all of my legal rights are balance so that I'm not blindsided down the road. I wanted to use an image of the ankh symbol as an overlay to a quote that is a sort of "preface" for the novel in general. I searched the forgotten bastions of antiquity across internet for the perfect one and surprisingly found it right underneath my nose on Wikipedia. The issue I'm having is that I am unsure whether or not I can use this image. I know technically the ankh symbol itself isn't copyrighted (as the symbol of the cross and so many others) and the image is a simple black and white drawing yet I still have reservations. I did check some royalty free sites but (go figure) they want you to pay for the privilege of downloading/using them. I'm not exactly sure what to do in this case and I'm hoping someone has some insight that could relieve me of my worries.
