Exactly what I was thinking Kneadacookie!

P.s. Kneadacookie my husband and I are making my website and I keep going back to yours saying "But I want it like this" Did you design your own page or have someone do it for you...if you did it yourself, what packages or software did you use?...If you don't mind sharing

I could do them for free, if I liked my sister-in-law icon_razz.gif just kidding of course it would be free for her but then you have all the other Mom's saying they want one too. If it's not possible I totally understand..I don't want to get in trouble but I do not have any money for lawyers right now either.

Well it seem kakeladi knows alot about this subject (a lot more then me that's for sure. I was just giving my opinion but I can tell you I will definetely not chance it in the future. I already have enough aggrivation because I live in Illinois and FDA regulations forbid me to bake and sell out of my home unless I have a separate kitchen which I can't afford to have one of those put in. So I plug away at just making my family the things that they want and love and life stays simple. Lynda

So all these big time bakeries that sell the character cakes must have either bought the rights to use them, or they're breaking the law, correct? Wow, I had no idea this was such a big thing! LOL I never even thought about it until I came to CC. Wow, SO glad I don't have to deal with that crud! icon_smile.gif I'm just a friend and family baker icon_biggrin.gif

I agree with all the NO's..Did you also know that even in my daycare I am not able to show ANY MOVIES? that would be under the "pently of public showings?
Lots of rules out there guys and gals not really worth the $$$ of fines and court costs.
Free is good for this but not the pocketbook. and we all are in the business of making money right?
Good luck with this debate,I think it will never really end.

How I understand it, is that Decopac already purchased the licensed from Disney and whoever to sell their products, so bakeries buy from Decopac are able to use it because the licensing fee has already been paid to Disney from Decopac.

Okay now I want to mess everything up...

I went to the US copyright page and I can't find anything about selling someone's work that you purchased from a store but of course I could find things about reproducing images...but...

I found on ebay someone selling the very same tinkerbell pail filled with tinkerbell products that she stated were disney licensed characters that were new and some still had original tags on them...does ebay allow you to sell your stuff that is licensed? This site also was reselling tinkerbell comforters, shirts, figurines etc.

So confused icon_cry.gif

Okay my husband is the voice of reason and said we are all being silly...

What he said is if we do not duplicate the image (create it ourself) than we can resell a product that we have purchased. In other words if we be a disney pail and fill it full of goodies we can then sell that pail.

Which is the same thing as going to a yard sale and buying someones tinkerbell highchair or blue's clues stuffed animal.

If someone knows other than this I'm all ears otherwise I'm gonna end up calling disney. icon_lol.gif

I believe eBay you can resell things like your husband said because it is like a garage sale. But when you add your cookies to it you are marketing an illegal product. My brother in law owns a bakery & he pays heft licensing fees to be able to buy the (in my opinion) ugly plastic toys for the tops of the cakes. I say don't do it. icon_smile.gif
