My aunt has some Muppet and Disney cookie cutters and I would love to use these. I would think they'd be a popular design for purchase. Then I got to thinking about trademark and all that and I wasn't sure if I could sell the cookies without some penalty from Disney or whoever owns the trademark. If anyone has any info or advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
you can't receive money for any copyright character. Most of those cutters state pretty plainly on the packaging "for home use only" and this is the reason. It doesn't matter if it's recreated in the form of cookie, cake, fondant, gumpaste, or play dough...you can't resell THEIR character.
Thank you! I had a feeling that was the case but I wasn't sure, and I'd seen people selling Mickey & Minnie cookies and Dora cookies so I was a little confused.
