Default What are the rules for images on bottlecaps?



I've started to make some bottlecap images, but I was wondering what the copyright rules are for them. I see lots of different things with Disney Princess and such, but how do I know which ones I can use and which I can't? TIA!

Anything licenced/copyrighted, you can't use and resell. If you purchase images, etc...they are for your own personal use.

you purchased the images from ppl that shouldnt even be selling them in the first place! LOL

the ONLY ppl that can sell for example disney characters is DISNEY... NO one else unless they are paying licensing fees to DISNEY ... same goes for all them college teams, NFL, baseball leagues, Nickolodeon, ect...

you bought princess ribbon from walmart? yea personal use only you cant make something out of it then sell it ... cause you are not paying royalty/licensing fees to disney

If you want to use any of the images you would have to licence it directly from Disney or whichever company holds the rights to the images you want to use.

I would think the "right of first sale" would come into play here. Of course this has been frequently debated; however, there is a website devoted to situations like this, where the owner was sued by big corporations (including Disney) and won. Right of first sale would dictate that once you purchased a licensed material, you could incorporate said material into a bigger project and legally sell it, as long as you state that the item is your *own* creation using licensed fabric/ribbon/etc/.

Thank you very much. That's what I assumed, but I know that so many people are selling bottlecap images with licensed product, so I wasn't sure

The first sale doctrine originally applied to digital media, and I'm pretty sure it has wording in there to the effect of 'unaltered'. So, once you cut up the liscensed fabric the first whatever no longer applies.

But this continues to be argued. So, what do I know.

I would like to see this site that is devoted to these situations. I've *heard* mentions of this site, but never actually seen a link.

yep I know but I have seen for example disney fabric and on the shelvage edge there is a note of for personal use only not for resale...

I think they are a bit bogus on these things but yea...
