Topic tags/keywords: tip

Just a quick heads-up on using team logos on your projects. I see corn hole boards and the like with team logos on here quite a bit.

Be careful. Building projects for your own back yard with a team logo will likely fly under the radar, but if you try to sell anything without the proper licensing (which I assure you you can’t afford), you run a major risk. An acquaintance of mine some years back was marketing some MLB items and got sued and wound up paying a hefty fine.

This topic has popped up quite a few times, all with basically the same conclusions…
Such as here, here, and here...

I suppose this applies to NCAA teams as well, although You will see a lot of it at any craft/art event you attend.

Opps! Didn’t see Brad’s comments until after i posted.

Two of those threads go back six years and the other nine. Given that folks on here can’t read a freakin’ thread, much less what happened last week, I think reminding them every six years might be a good idea…LOL.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. Quite a stretch though. Try to do better next time.

You mean Brad’s outdated comments? Yeah, NCAA too.

Hmm… the third thread I linked to was last posted to about 7 months ago. Doesn’t make the info contained in them any less valid though :)

Since when is 12-04-2009 at 01:31 AM seven months ago? When it comes right down to it, Brad, who gives a crap that something I brought up was discussed nine years ago, six years ago, or yesterday? Someone whose opinion means anything that is.

Here’s your chance though, big guy. 12-04-2009 wasn’t nine years ago, it was only 8 years 7 months and 9 days! Go ahead and let me have it…lol

What was your original point then, Brad? How often do we reply to which table saw to buy, which finish to use, how to accomplish this joint? Yet you go back months and years to suggest my post was redundant?

Don’t you have some global warming data to be analyzing anyway?

I think he needs to get out in the shop — if he has one — and build something, DW. He’s typical of the know-it-all types who have nothing to back up their big talk.

Simply to point to additional information that has already been posted on the subject previously. If you took it as a slam against you, then you misinterpreted the intent. They do contain some good stuff, particularly regarding the difference between trademarks, copyrights, and some personal experiences dealing with incorporating logos in projects. I’m sorry you found it less than informative, and am now sorry that I tried to contribute.

Cheers,
Brad
