Subject:  selling not so sneis stuff?
Message:  I sell photos and iron ons on-line...

at this point I need the money in order to "make it" here in Israel...

there will be a time I won't need this business...

with that in mind I wanted to know if there is a problem selling images of popular icons, models, pop stars, popular music artists, for example like Marilyn Monroe....most images are not "sneis"...if you could give me some background as to why this would be a problem or why not it would be a big help in deciding not to sell these things anymore...

also is there a halacha that I'm breaking as well? because that would also easliy stop me from selling them....

thanks for your time...
