That video was cool!

I just wanted to come forward and say that I own the copyright for a cake. It's round and covered with white fondant. I stack smaller cakes on top of larger ones and decorate the fondant with flowers, or piping, and mostly sell it to women with diamond rings on thier left hands. I've been looking through some of your pictures and I think you can all expect letters from my attorney

icon_biggrin.gif Heee heee

I think if that nut job contacts you again, you should pass her web site, or email address around and we'll flood her with pictures of hamburger cakes dating back to the stone age.

OR

Everyone on this site can make a hamburger cake, take pictures of it, and threaten to sue HER for patent (trademark, whatever) infrindgement. Can you imagine, she turns on her computer one day and there are 1000 people telling her she's the infrindger?!

I have actually put an email out to my friend who's husband is a patent attorney. I'm hoping they will have some info for us all! Just so we can fight back when the nuts of the world try to rain on our parades!

hello everyone - sorry, i didn't disappear....i just don't have internet at home and finally had a chance to log in at work icon_wink.gif

just to let all ur inquiring minds know.....i haven't heard a word from the evil copyright queen (that's what me and a decorator friend r calling her now).....i guess u guys r right.....she was just bluffing and hoped that i would take the pic down, no questions asked......WRONG! icon_lol.gif

and i've been cracking up all morning catching up on all ur comments!!! u guys r soooo funny!

and OhMyGoodies - thx for letting me know that......i'm feeling pretty proud that i'm actually recognized by google now! but u know why, right? because of all of u checking the pic out!!! thumbs_up.gif u guys r the best! thx for all ur support and for having my back!

a lot of u have asked to see the 'copyright queen's' cheeseburger cupcake.....tell me, should i post a link to her site? should i post just the buger pic here? i don't want to mis-represent and make it appear that i stole her pic too! and i don't want to send everyone to her site and cause a back-lash against her.....not saying that u guys would do that, but unlike her, i'm a nice person and don't want to bring anything negative to anyone icon_lol.gif

Is it a legit business site? Maybe you could give us a few clues, enough to perhaps google for it and find it ourselves...I mean you'd just be helping us find another cake site and we all look for those regularly right? icon_twisted.gif

I would NOT post a link. First, she will be able to see that people are coming there from here if she has a tracker (and she can read this thread) - and second, I've seen several busy-bodies get too involved in situations like this. Offering her up for slaughter is not a "nice" thing... I think she's in the wrong, although maybe she thought she was in the right. A lot of us get confused about copyright issues and what's legal - she doesn't need to get attacked for it.

She was polite in her letter to you, I think the polite response is to just let it go.

But that's just my opinion.

I just checked out your website and nowhere did I see the words "Check out these super original cheeseburger cupcakes that I invented myself. Available here only! Nowhere else in the world can you get a cupcake shaped like a cheeseburger due to my complex and original design"

Yes, maybe if something like that was written on your website, a person could complain...but COME ON LADY! It just sounds like she was irked and was throwing around the term "copyrighted" to scare you.

Now from what I read on this thread about all the copyright rules and regs, I wonder if no matter who really invented this cheeseburger cupcake idea - being it from Jan of this year or August of 1976 - can a person get a copyright if they are the first PERSON to go try and obtain one for an idea? I mean if Betty Crocker made it in 1976 but never copyrighted it, can a person in 2007 do it?

Anyway, leave your work up on your website. If those are the cake and baked goods that you offer your clients then why would you take anything down? The only cake things I know that a person can't sell are copyrighted Character pan cakes. I learned that from my Wilton instructor.

Tell her sorry she is offended that you make the same cake as her but....too bad! You did nothing wrong!

Bake on!!
