I believe all "Dr. Seuss images are intellectual property of Broderbund Software and Random House books. You will need to contact them directly for licensed rights to reproduce any images created by Theodore Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss). My guess is that you would be shelling out a serious amount of $$ in order to reproduce images or get hit pretty hard between the ocular marbles as well as other locations of your being if you fail to garner a license ....and go ahead with any image reproductions.I am looking for some dr seuss clip art. Does anybody know where I can find any?
I'm amazed that some sign companies show little to no hesitation producing graphics that use things like characters from animated Disney movies or other cartoons.
I sure don't recommend a day care use Disney characters. We had one here locally that had a exterior wall mural with some gorilla characters from the Disney animated movie version of Tarzan. Amazingly somehow Disney found out about it and forced the day care to paint over the wall.
I did a set for my sisters kids nursery... I'd gladly have paid for the art so I could do so, but I couldn't. I'd never sell it, I even felt bad about doing it for a family member... But doing it for free with no proffit is where I drew the line... although I know I should have drew it further and just not done it.
I wouldn't touch anything copyrighted with a 10 ft pole. They may not have cracked down yet, but I'm sure it'll happen. And it's not worth losing your business over.
That 10' pole must have been longer that day.
Why does everyone keep on thinking that the "no profit" actually makes things alright or is an accepted yard stick for doing or not doing something when it comes to someone else's IP? That's what has me confused.
The word is out, if truth be said. I think they'll wait until you're dead. It saves their lawyers toil and grief to prosecute a silent thief. They'll take your house, your car and shop, and who can tell where it will stop? You may not fear the wrath of Zeus, jus' wait until you mess with Seuss.
Not to worry, they don't have a leg to stand on. I have it on good authority that Dr. Seuss never was a doctor of anything. Should be able to counter-sue on misrepresentation of credentials.
