Trademark rules and use

Granny2 | Posted in General Discussion on

My daughter-in-laws school wants to use some disney character’s on their T-shirts, just for their personal use and the printer won’t print their shirts.

In the last 6 mo. or so, one of the sewing magazines ran an article on this. 

Can anyone out there help with the trademark law governing use of trademark character use or fabric use.

    To my knowing, the Disney's, and others, are adamant about their rights to their characters, logos, or such.   Any thing done with licensed things requires the license owner to be paid for the use.

    Charities or juried craft show will refuse to take anything hand made with a licensed image.

    The possibility of legal action is probably why the printer declined.

    I'm unsure of which sewing magazine to which you're referring.   I do know a graph web site in the USA were taken down, circa 1999, because many of them were of licensed products.

    There are sites outside the USA that have various graphs.  Though this is other than your ISO. 

    How successful your DIL's school might be in getting permission from Disney is a variable.  MO.  The way to find out is to be in touch with the company and ask.  There's a 50/50 chance of getting the answer wanted.

    The following Google page has hits on the subject.
