So I know I can't charge for copyrighted cakes, that's no problem, I don't. But I'm making a character cake for my daughters birthday, and I will be posting pics on FB. A friend asked if she could repost them on her friends FB. So does that violated any copyrights?

I don't see how, but I'm not lawyer... In my mind it would be like your daughter wearing a character shirt, and that picture being posted. You're breaking no laws by making that cake since you're not selling it, so I don't see how the pictures of it would cause any problems.

Isn't it a shame the whole world is so paranoid anymore?!?? icon_rolleyes.gif

If you are concerned, ask that the pictures be captioned with something that shows the cake was not sold. "Look at this great cake my friend made for her daughter's birthday!" kind of thing. If you're not comfortable with that, caption the picture on your own FB page in a way that people will know the cake wasn't sold.
