I learned something on here. I knew Disney, and that Disney owns so much that it includes all the other cool stuff too. Just trying to think if I knew any others besides Disney. Oh…Who did the Gone in 60 Seconds? Because B is for Build had their car taken from them because they reproduced Eleanor, and named the car as such. At least from my understanding. I think it was a copyright infringement?
Heh - I made up a quickie design for a friend to use as her profile pic that combined the SW rebel logo with RBG’s favorite collar. She then said another friend was going to make shirts. I told her the Mouse would take them down and she poo poo’d me. Less than 24 hours folks.
Honestly I don’t even think it was the Mouse directly - just the printing company knowing the Mouse would be along. I actually got an order in before that 24 hours and so far have received 2/3rd of it. We’ll see if the rest arrives
It had a lot of details going on that probably brought it past a normal infringement case (that seem really similar to how Etsy operates in a way… by allowing it to happen - but they were manufacturing the pieces). But as a printer, whew. I think Walmart, CVS, etc are all really careful about what prints they reproduce if they look professional enough.
And football, both college and NFL.
Made some college team logo’s for a few friends and they wanted to go massive. I said let me check.
The license to do so would not be for a hobbyist. The restrictions and requirements are crazy train (I don’t have a finance officer to name with direct contact and I dislike doing my taxes yearly, much less sending them off to someone on a quarterly report basis).
For some large firm like Sportsmania, you could probably afford it.
So I asked them directly if they were willing to do all the paper work while I remained the busy elf in the woodshed, ignorant of all the demands of a corporate world, and of course they said no way.
I said Happy Trails. Let people drool over the one of a kinds someone, somewhere made for you.
