Default Licensed fabric question

I am entering a craft fair this fall. I purchased some football team fabric, both fleece and cotton to make fleece blankets and purses. The fabric is licensed. Can I sell these items? I sure wouldn't want to get in trouble with the NFL.

Just remember that the author of that article is a British citizen living in the Cayman Islands, and is not a lawyer. I'm not saying that the info is wrong, but I would be more comfortable if it were written by someone in the country where I resided.

I sold a few quilts that contained a licensed fabric. My opinion might be wrong but I always thought that was more towards large manufacturing of products from the licensed fabric.

Yes you can as other long as you don't say they are manufactured by whatever entity that is on the fabric. If you say that you made the products, you're ok. The writing on the selvage, from what I have read, is really between the fabric manufacturers and whoever holds the license for the graphics. Hopefully this answered your question.

Just like any other law. Depends on the country/state you live in.

The few shows that I do specifically state they will not allow any merchandise made with Licensed fabrics. Best to check with the show before you proceed.

QuiltnNan, a lawyer friend of mine researched this several years ago and came up with generally the same conclusions listed in your link. When I had tried to mention it in some previous threads (a few years ago) I received some negative comments. Thank you so much for the link to verify what I was told years ago. I think this will clear up this problem for many people.
