Wow that is interesting stuff! I have always been under the impression that you could use trademarked things as long as you paid for the original item (ie ribbon, material) and advertised as it being handmade from that product. Tabberone is very clever and witty! I am glad to see someone take on the "big dogs." They get their cut in the begining......they are just being GREEDY!

Just my opinion.

Yep...I think it's great.

But first, the required legal disclaimer. We are not lawyers. The statements made here concerning legal rights and legal options are opinions and a result of our encounters, in and out of federal court, with lawyers representing corporations who have threatened us over trademark and copyright issues. We strongly suggest you seek competent legal advice before attempting to do what we have done. We did. And we were told we didn't have a chance. So we ignored them. And we won. End of disclaimer.

Those stories about Disney coming in and taking action against home crafters are all urban myths. Not one can be verified; they are ALL second hand. None are true. No company has the legal right to do anything in your home or business without a court order.

The statements on fabrics or software about limits on selling products made are not enforceable under federal law. Items made from licensed fabrics fall under trademark law, not copyright law. Permission from the fabric manufacturer is not required under the First Sale Doctrine to make and then sell items made from their fabric (see Precious Moments v La Infantil, 1997, (D.P.R.) 971 F.Supp. 66).

We have been in federal court against M&M/Mars, Disney, Major League Baseball, Sanrio (Hello Kitty) and United Media (Peanuts), all over the use of their licensed fabrics, and everyone of them preferred to settle the matter rather than fight it in court. And we represented ourselves. Every one of these cases and settlements are on our web site. These are billion dollar companies that have very large legal budgets who did not want to be on the losing side of this issue in federal court like Precious Moments was.

Bravo.

My husband is an attorney and I am usually on the side of the Licensor/Infringee, however not in this case.

Crafters owe more to you for what you were willing to stand up for then they will ever realize.

Bravo.

hmmm interesting...The back of my UT ribbon I bought from Walmart did say not to be sold as a completed project. I see this stuff all the time at craft shows too...What about those Mickey appliques? Everyone sells them. I sell them. I'm not worried about it..
