There are different opinions on this. Some believe that absolutely no images of living things are acceptable. Others believe that it is acceptable if the thing that is drawn is missing a vital part of its body, like the face, the body or the head. Since a skeleton (or merely a skull, in the case of the Pirates of the Carribean logo) can't possibly be alive and is missing loads of vital parts of the body, that would probably be okay according to that opinion.

But yeah, this isn't really a proper opinion and you should ask somebody qualified rather than posting here. If you post here then all that will happen is people will just copy/paste fatwas from other websites or give their own opinions.

Good question. I got this little statue of a fictional character as a gift a long time ago. I'd like to know as well
