A client requested this cake. How much would you charge? Bottom tier would be a 10".
Would NOT charge at all as that is a copyright design You AND customer could end up in jail for doing that Sorry
this is a sculpture on top of a tier cake with orbiting bees as well as artwork — if I did this cake for my family and they wanted to know how much i should be paid — it would be a lot — I would charge $325 plus the per serving price —
copyright infringement is a big deal — it’s like speeding — everybody does it but you can wind up with anything from a ticket to getting wiped out — and you can even get away with it — but not everybody gets away with it all the time —
like I could do a designer purse cake for my sister but it would be wrong for me to advertise it on my website (when I had one) and wrong for me to sell them —
taken to the extreme — the feds actually get involved in counterfeiting things like designer purses and stuff like that —
best to you
I would say $705
How do you usually come to price your cakes? If I said 400 and someone else said 525, it doesn't do you any good. A lot of variables are different from person to person.
Personally, I would not take the cake for the sole reason of it being a copyrighted image.
Out of curiosity, who on this site has ran into copyright legal issues?
I have been denied permission to use a copyrighted item --
you need to understand that the people who currently post on this site are not representative of the thousands of people you see with all the pictures on here -- does not at all represent those who've been in trouble --
It's not a matter of who has run into copyright issues. It's a matter of copying a trademark, not paying for usage, or getting permission to use the image. I did an OSU cake for my husband 2 years ago and it was hell getting permission to use the logo one time...for an unpaid cake. Will you be sent a cease and desist? Probably not. You asked what we would charge, and we told you, along with the reason why. We can't stop you from making the cake lol most people don't even know about copyright laws, and even if they do; they do what they want
I agree with the opinions above. The only copywritten designs I've ever done were for Icing Smiles and they were donated, no money involved. In my market, I would charge $7 per serving for this cake.
