Would this be legal?

I bought a officially licensed pro baseball teams clothing item........an infant outfit. I put it on a teddy bear, and photographed it. I would like to use it for baby shower invites to sell locally.........is this legal?

To sell, I doubt it. It seems like it would violate some copy right law. Not positive though.

I agree with MowMow. I believe the license means it is exclusive to the company to which it is licensed.

I'll ask at work tomorrow and let you know. In the meantime, can you give me the correct spelling of your full name?

For the lawsuit, you know.....

Sounds cute though! perhaps you could do the same idea but just use the colors of the team instead of the actual logo? for example, the red wings--who are very near and dear to my heart-- have the colors of red and white, you could use a red onsie and add white buttons or other white embellishments to infer the team.
To be honest though, almost any craft show you go to has handmade items with logos and whatnot. If it's truly illegal, I don't know to what degree it is enforced.

I don't have the little bear anymore, I sent him off to a new home, as a gift for an adorable little baby boy........along with the outfit. But, I could always dress up one of the cats!! Wouldn't they just love that!!!

I know, right! Just take a look at Etsy once, and you will see loads of stuff like this there! I'm to chicken to step outside the lines though. My luck, I'd be the one to get caught.
