How did she get rights to publish the book? Is WB on her payroll now? gosh those cakes are cute! My hubby is insisting that I make a Tom & Jerry Cake for our little one. She will be 2 in May and she laughes and giggles and says, "Tm n Jarwy! Jarwy Jarwy!"
That's why I'm confused LOL. I don't know how she could publish a book with their characters when obviously they are copyrighted, but I'm not very knowledgeable about that legal stuff! I would love to make the Tom & Jerry cake too! I have a little girl that will be 3 in May, and she has recently become fascinated with them. She laughs and says "silly cat" LOL.
Those cakes and *any* subject that has a copyright can be made...... they just canNOT be *sold*
So sadsmile.....go for it for you little girl
Ok thanks for the info kakeladi! That's what I thought, but wasn't quite sure.
I am sure she got WB's permission to do the book and I also bet there is some sort of statement in the book that the cakes/images can not be replicated to sell with out permission and that they are for home use only.
You're probably right carolyngwen - I didn't check the book, but i bet it is on there somewhere LOL.
I have one of her other character books and there is a whole page at the front with all the copyright information for each cake. There is also a note at the top of the page which states
"The cakes in this book are copyright and may not be used for any commercial purpose without a licence from the Copyright Owner"
Awesome - thanks for your info ladies! I appreciate it
I just had four days of classes with Debbie Brown a couple of weeks ago, and this subject came up.
She obtains permission (license) from each entity (be it Warner Brothers, Disney, etc) to make, sell, and publish their figures on her cakes.
Wow I'm surprised that they give permission to anyone! 4 days of classes with Debbie Brown? I'm so jealous LOL. That's awesome.
