I have seen people mention copyright laws when decorating / selling cakes with characters. Is there any info on this specifically for cake decorating that I can read?
I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I don't know how to search a specific forum for a specific question that may have already been addressed.
Thanks! Hope to hear from y'all!

I would be interested in knowing as well.

And also, how does someone like Duff (Ace of Cakes) use copyrighted material without permission? He did a Charlie Brown Hallowe'en cake once. It was amazing (1/2 cake of Linus and Sally in the pumpkin patch waiting for the Great Pumpkin and 1/2 of the rest of the gang in their costumes, complete with the brown paper candy bags (with candy) they carried). Would he have gotten permission and just not mentioned it on tv?

You can not sell any images or characters that are copyrighted. You can buy the packaged kits and use those like in grocery stores.

The character pans can not be used and sold either. Home use only.
