I saw her on that Food Network show. Pretty intereting.

I wondered this same thing about a local cookie lady that makes cookie cutters in the shapes of copyrighted images and says so on her website. Someone suggested that she might have gotten persmission. I guess that's possible.

If they have the licensing, it's ok. We just don't know if he/she has the licensing agreement.

I thought so, but I could be wrong.

No, edible images aren't exempt from copyright protection. (Although, it would be easier to eat the evidence. <lol>icon_wink.gif

I've seen a lot of sites that have pics of cakes and cookies that are copyrighted images. Maybe some people don't know that they aren't supposed to, I didn't know until I found out on here. And besides, who really cares...isn't it such a stupid law anyway?!?!?!

I'm new to this but are the cookies considered an edible image? Would that then be ok?
Opinions are like a***holes. Everyone has one, so if you stick it out there it's going to get kicked.

ON cakepans4less.com, they sell candy molds in the shape of special characters, butcall them something else. For example, they have a Simpsons mold that they call, the simpletons. Mickey mouse is "A Male Mouse" Maybe that's how these people are getting away with it as well?

I believe that if you ask to use a certain image, you may obtain permission to do so. Perhaps she has obtained permission to recreate these images. That's what I would assume.

I think it's unfair to post something like this here - I certainly wouldn't like it if someone tried to insinuate I was doing something illegal in a public forum. There are libel laws...

I wasn't trying to get anyone in trouble. I was just curious if there were ways around the law. Sorry if I offended anyone.
