Even this one got through. Unfair. haha
This is a myth. There is no provision of copyright or trademark law that substantiates a certain percentage of change makes something an original work.I believe the rule is you must alter the logo by 20% in order for it to me considered original.
that's a no brainer. but why create the shirt in the first place if you 'now' realize it was wrong to do?I had a design on my website in which Jack Daniels contacted me requesting it to be taken down. Don't know the exact law on it so, rather then spend money I took it off.
Enough would mean altering the fonts enough so as not to arouse the lawyers' curiosity. As I've said before, give them a chance to sue, and they'd sue so don't give them that satisfaction.If you can alter the fonts enough and really stay away from exactly copying the original logo you should be fine. After all, we're all standing on the shoulders of giants ;-)
Modify half of mickey's head vertically, a 50% change, and you're still likely to get sued. Even if you modify the remaining eye, a 60% alteration?, you are not likely to be in any better luck.I believe the rule is you must alter the logo by 20% in order for it to me considered original. The Intel swoosh (like the Nike check mark), are most certainly trademarked by themselves (less the company name) and would probably look stupid if altered 20%. That being said, by placing it on high profile websites for sale, it makes it very likely anyone would get caught verses someone who sells the design (on a shirt) say at a local swap meet.
I did not realize they have a team actively looking for that stuff. Also if they did, I figured it would be a cease and desist letter as it was. But lesson learned none the less.that's a no brainer. but why create the shirt in the first place if you 'now' realize it was wrong to do?
