I deal with licensing all day, everyday. I just wondered if anyone thinks about the copyright issues on items. I see lots of cakes that are licensed, trademarked, and copyrighted images, shapes and characters.
Is anyone afraid of getting caught? I am not downing anyone for doing, I just wondered if anyone thinks about it.
I deal with licenses for Fraternities and sororities, who threated to sue us if we didn't get licensed to produce items for them. They are 90%+ of our business, so we sucked it up and got the licenses.
Just curious. Paddlegirl14
Yes, I've thought about it. What to do?
Last November, we were on vacation at DW and was talking with one of the employees about cakes I've made. He requested my web site and went to it. After lunch we met with him again and he loved what I had made. Of course, I took it off because he was sharing it with other people. Scary!
I didn't want the "wrong" person seeing it, so I removed it just in case. It had mouse ears and no doubt what it was.
Wish I could get permission from them, but I know I never will.
There's actually a pretty interesting thread going on about this very topic right now. http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-618237.html
Thanks. I missed that topic.
