On a separate note, be careful about the usage of the Obama logo, MTA logo and Chris Brown image.
Sorry about that. But I figured you would want to know before you start blogging and driving more traffic to your site. It's a lot better to hear this news on a forum than in a cease and desist letter.turning into another thread lol.
Without license or permission, they are off limits. Whoever took the photo of Chirs Brown owns the copyright to that image. And Chris Brown owns the exclusive right to profit off his own name and likeness. This is known as Right of Publicity.Are celebrity photos off limits??
Some are licensed, some are not. Some get away with it, some don't. But if you don't have license or permission, it's illegal and you are at risk to be sued.I see them all the time. Especially the Chuck norris and tiger woods shirts.
It doesn't work that way. You can't "tweak" a logo and avoid infringement. It's clearly the MTA logo and it's obvious you want customers to know you are referencing the MTA. You are definitely at risk to be sued with that design.Also i thought the mta logo was tweaked enough not to get sued.
