Selling origami

So realtalk about selling Origami

I want to get into making professional large scale origami modular lamps.

Was reading the copyright shit on origami USA but it was crazy long winded
and didn't explain or give me the info I needed.

I"m often tweaking models and embossing instead of folding and using glue
and such to achieve the same shapes but with no viable unnecessary creases.

How much change goes through a piece before its yours?
Would I have to contact every single person before selling something
modified off their design?
Is making the piece a lamp considered enough of a change to call it my own?
What if the designer of the model is dead what then?

Any help would be amazing, thank you in advance.
