Question About Anime Merch. & Copyright

I'm planning to start making plushes, pillows, and blankets to sell, but I'm not very clear on the copyright laws. Would I get in trouble for not contacting the original artists (of an anime or manga..) then selling the things I make online? If someone could post a website listing copyright laws that would be helpful as well. Thanks~

Copyright and trademark are complicated legal issues and it's not a good idea to rely on the internet for legal advice. But you may find it helpful to check out previous discussions of this topic here:
