If I'm a store owner can i buy from a person who makes shirts but is not a business legally. They don't have their legal work filed at all. Is it legal for me to buy and sell their shirts in Florida?

Also, if a person was part of that "business" who was supplying their shirts and they quit and didn't want the shirts they designed being sold can the supplier still sell them?

Hmm

Not in the USA so wouldn`t be too sure about the rules there... but just throwing this idea out as it seems to be an analogy of sorts...

If a vintage or pre-loved clothing store gets most of their stock from say garage sales and church flea markets... is that illegal? There's a lot of overstock new old stock seen at some of these places.

But again, not sure what the law says. Probably something obscure :D:D

oh Whoops - just reread the original post, and saw you used the word "make". Haha so not analogous at all :)

Re. your second question - depends on what kind of contract he had with the business. Did the designer agree to a Works-made-for-hire clause?

If so, then it doesn`t matter if he wants them sold or not, the supplier (his previous employer) has the right to do so.

Ah, here's something that may explain it further: 17 U.S. Code § 201 - Ownership of copyright | LII / Legal Information Institute
