Louis Vuitton are not happy about bag cakes! - Page 2

post #16 of 127
It doesn't mean you can't make an awesome purse cake. The Cake Girls have a whole purse line and sell them like crazy, they just don't slap someone else's logo on it. I've had people try to order all kinds of character cakes, I explain the legalities, some people order a different, but still matching cake, others go to someone who doesn't care about risking their butts.

So make a cute purse, bag, tote, or clutch... don't out tweety bird, dora, or LV on it...

I've always been under the impression that parodies are legal ONLY when you get permission first. For example, Weird Al has to contact the original artist and get permission before releasing a song. He got in big trouble when he did a Coolio song without permission a few years back!



Not in music. I have a band that I carry called Apologetix--that's all they do is parodies. They are totally awesome.

LOL! When I turned 40 my brothers and sisters thought it would be great to get me a "real" Coach bag. We always chip in for a nice gift on eachother's 40th. (There's 8 of us, well 7 now one of my DB died)

I kept telling my DH, "tell them I want an Agbay", "please, I don't want jewelry, I want an Agbay"! Well, they didn't listen and I got the Coach bag icon_sad.gif Oh, I don't mean to sound ungrateful, it's just, I had 2 fake ones that I liked just fine.

Everytime I pick up that handbag, I think, "Come on Agbay" LOL!!! The good news is my DH bought me the Agbay, so I did end up getting one, but it would have been nice to have not had to pay for it ourselves. icon_rolleyes.gif

dkelly, why do people think it's better to get you what THEY want you to have instead of something YOU actually want to have? And don't give me that crap about "It's the thought that counts" because my response is "well, then you have stupid thoughts!" icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

They should *think* about listening to what we tell them! icon_razz.gif

They were in charge of the bread set out on the table, the flour for the grain offerings, the unleavened wafers, the baking and the mixing, and all measurements of quantity and size.

I know that's what I kept saying to my DH. Being the youngest, and since all the others got jewelry or a watch on their 40th, their thought was they wanted to give me something special that would remind me of them when I used it.

I use my Agbay more than my Coach bag, so I definitely would have thought of them every time I was torting my layers. icon_biggrin.gif

icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif Geesh, everyone is full of themselves aren't they!

"Here, I won't give you something that you need so that you'll think of ME lovingly everytime you use it. I'll give you something that will take up space on the closet shelf, so you think of ME and cuss me out everytime you open the door and it falls on your head! 'Coz even tho it's YOUR birthday, we all know that it's all about ME!!" icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Indeed. After my hubby was diagnosed with high cholesterol, a family member gave us a case of Omaha steaks for Christmas.

The gift was generous but not thoughtful. Made a helluva thank you card. icon_wink.gif

I can do a naked Minnie Mouse humping Goofy and Disney certainly wouldn't want THAT kind of "free publicity" on their character / creation.

It's about protection of their image; of their creation; of their product.[/quote]


That is the funniest thing I have read today. I love your sense of humor. Now back to work I go. I feel more energized.
Btw.... Please do not do a naked minnie mouse humping anyone!

I don't think that's going to happen anytime soon. Around a year or so ago they won a huge lawsuit against eBay for trademark infringement. I can't remember the exact amount but it was around 40 million dollars. They claimed that eBay was not policing the site and allowing counterfeits to be sold as real on a daily basis, and eBay claimed they were simply a venue for people to sell their items and it wasn't their job to investigate every seller. LV won; I believe eBay appealed but I don't know where it went from there.

The fact that they are questioning a bakery (to me) is totally ridiculous but it doesn't surprise me at all.
