I am wondering how edible images play into the licensing when decorating cakes? I know you aren't suppose to "make/create" a character for sale, but wondering about this.

Also, wondering about cookies. I've seen some decorated similar (not exactly like) to Wizard of Oz characters---you have a girl in a gingham dress, a lion, a scarecrow, a tin man & a dog. how does that play in? And then is something like a "yellow hat" like in Curious George copyrighted (e.g. could you make a yellow hat & monkey cookies)? I just wonder what is ok & what exactly isn't

Ok, how I missed the copyright topic I'll never know. I'll go read it to see if my ? is answered

I think as long as it is slightly different and call it something else,its not a problem.But I could be wrong.

If movies are anything like theater, as long as an individual or trust of some sort owns the rights, it would still likely be infringement (but I'm no lawyer). Being the iconic film it is, I have to think Frank Oz's descendants still own it (or maybe Liza does?)
