commercial use permissions
I have noticed some lovely items in the CU shop, and i was wondering how do you go about getting permission to use manufactured items (ie teddy bears and dolls etc?) i have tried writing to the manufacturer but had no response, any ideas most appreciated, thanks, Marion

Re: commercial use permissions
Are you asking about items you took pictures of or Items form PU Kits?

Re: commercial use permissions
If you're talking about extracting, for example (as it's here in the room - kids toys are everywhere), a toy that has been manufactured, like a Mickey Mouse toy - or any toy to be honest - you will have a hard time getting permission to extract it and then sell it (which is what is being done if you're selling a kit). Toy manufacturers usually trademark their toys to ensure knock off versions aren't resold - and extracting and repacking in a kit would violate their trademark restrictions. Keep trying with the manufacturer - but there's no "quick way" to get permission - hope that helps!

Look For Copyright Symbol on Tags or Embossed Labels. If it has a Copyright Symbol don't waste your time trying to get permission.

Thank You Jen for answering her question. ;)
