Okay so I am still wrapping my head around all the different copyright issues.
I know you can't mold a copyrighed charactor/logo etc and sell it. But what about images from the cricut disks? I know there is a disney cartridge and several others, are we okay to use those as we have purchased the cartridge or is that still for personal use?
Thanks in advance!
I'm pretty sure that it's the same - a no-no. In doing so, you are making money on their copyrighted work without having the permission to do so.
Good question! The carts have specific copyright laws attached, so Disney and the other "special character" cartridges are still protected, can only use the images for personal use, be that on paper or cake But now with the Cricut cake coming out I think a whole new copyright nightmare is waiting to come to a head!
I believe it will still only be for personal use. The rules of use on your cartridge aren't going to change because the Cricut for Cake comes out, so all of the same rules are still going to apply.
I haven't seen any terms and conditions with them yet, but going off of past experience the answer would be no you can't use it.
The only time I have seen something with copy right material that you can print (or in this case cut) would be with a certain disk that only has so many images you can use. (my experience has been with edible images) But these are sold through certain distrubuters for resale use.
Think of it like the wilton character pans. You can buy them, but you can't sell the cake from the pan because it is a copyright character.
I kinda figured it would be the same but what fun we could have if we were allowed to use them
