Hi all!

I posted a similar question in a different forum a couple days ago. I should have posted here.

This is in regards to copyrights regarding characters. Such as, Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Spider-man, Cars etc. This list can go on forever. I have heard that these companies will NOT allow small business to use thier characters??? If you have a client that wants a cake with a character like above on their cake, how do you go about doing that?

I am aware of 2 other decorating sites that you can buy some images from, however they are limited in what they can send you...

Thanks....

You work within the copyright laws. You buy the licensed items available (yes, they are limited), you use licensed edible images, or you build a theme cake and allow the client to place figures as they see fit once they get it home.

You will "lose" a sale as a result. To me, that is better than losing my business as a result of a fine.
