Default Bottle Cap images and the law

I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the write place or sorry if it is not.

I started making bottle cap necklaces and was wondering if we are legally able to print and sell HK, Twilight, MLP, NBA, MLB, Spongebob, etc without getting into some sort of trouble? I know a lot of people sell those images on etsy and stuff, but just want to make sure I won't get in trouble.

They are not your images and you have not purchased the rights to use them, so if you do use them and you are caught you will get in trouble.

There are many people who are ignorant to usage laws and/or just don't care. Should they get caught, they will get into trouble.

There is a grave difference between supporting the war effort and those in uniform. If you do not stand behind our troops, feel free to stand in front of them.

Also, it has been 147+ days since I have seen my DH, so don't expect me to be all rainbows and sunshine when you are being stupid. Oh, let us not forget the glitter.

No, you cannot legally sell them.

There are some GREAT sites out there where you can legally buy and use images for bottle caps, etc. One of my favorites is - they have some REALLY cute images!!

Some colleges will allow you to use their images if you pay a liscensing fee. We paid Oklahoma State University $100 and now we can sell items with OSU, the Ostate logo, the OSU logo and Pistol Pete all we want.....You might want to check into those things with your teams, I'm pretty sure pro teams don't do it tho....
