Any way around this? - Page 5

post #61 of 91
It really doesn't take much to get everyone going crazy on here. Even one of you searching the internet for proof! So funny.... "because everything you find on the internet is true!!" No... I'm not changing my mind!

Now I'm off to go decorate my cake, I think I will make it look like MICKEY MOUSE!! icon_smile.gif

Sounds like a plan! Please come back and let us know when you are never caught by Disney. Be sure to provide proof and a posted picture of you never being caught, otherwise we will assume you were.

I personally know someone who received a substantial "finder's fee" from Disney for turning in a copyright infringer.

There are dozens of "famous" decorators with infringing photos on their websites if you wanted to turn people in. That might bring this argument to a head and give us all our answers. icon_biggrin.gif

For using Disney characters on her cakes. My friend dropped a dime on her and Disney sent her a percentage of the fine that the infringing baker had to pay, and it was a pretty nice sum.

 

I've said this before, but I always love the arguments that you should go ahead and use someone else's copyrighted logos and trademarked phrases, but when one baker takes another baker's cake picture everyone is ready to lose their minds and posts all over their facebook pages how they should be ashamed of themselves, and what a piece of scum they are. If it belongs to someone else get permission or don't use it, or let someone else take the risk if they want to. It makes your life a lot simpler to be honest.

Wow.  .. I can really start making money now!!  Just from all the copyrighted images on all the cakes on this website alone, thanks for the idea!  Cake decorators are a ruthless group!  

 

Christoper Garrens cake (he's been on tv) made a Nightmare before christmas cake (disney).... Hmmmmm

This is turning into such a funny thread.

It's always great when someone you don't like can't seem to stop embarrassing themselves.

Carry on, folks!
