Babylon 5 custom dvd cover art

I have often looked at my Babylon 5 box sets and have always wanted different slip case covers for them. I was also dissapointed with the terrible dvd cover for season 2 of Jeremiah. Does anyone know where I can buy custom dvd slip case cover art or how I can make my own high quality cover art for Babylon 5. Is any of this possible or is this a copyright problem with the tv and movie studios ?

thanks
dennis

Yes, it's probably a copyright (tradmark?) infringement but chances are, as long as you include the copyright symbol and Warner Bros. as a part of the art, they probably wouldn't do anything as long as it was low-key.

Thanks Babylonfan. That is some nice looking art work. I don't have a fancy printer but I will figure something out soon. It looks pretty simple to do.

Re: Babylon 5 custom dvd cover art

I would imagine that the production of DVD cover art for your own personal use would fall within the definition of 'fair useage' and therefore would not fall foul of copyright law. Look at it this way - if you have already purchased the DVDs and are not distributing the art work you produce, who is it harming?
