Some general Major League Baseball marks:
I have been denied permission to reproduce my own embroidered rendition of Fenway Park. If I remove the title, embroidered on the bottom of the piece, is it acceptable? It features the green wall and the citgo sign and I had some pieces reproducted onto note cards, cups and business cards until Zazzle and Cafepress informed me. I have two local printers who will do work for me on note cards and tee shirts. Isn’t Fenway public domain?
I can’t answer specific questions here, but I would be glad to discuss more. Did you receive a letter demanding that you stop? Please use my contact page (top right of this page) to send me a message or schedule a call.
