Tatty Ted Angel Policy - RESULT

docrafts Licensed Products Specific Policy

An Angel Policy for products created by docrafts under licence from third parties is also included in this document to ensure a fair and ethical treatment for all parties involved.

A list of all licensed docrafts brands is shown at the bottom of this document.

There is no restriction to the sale, for charitable purposes, of handmade cards, using elements from docrafts licensed product ranges, provided there is no claim that the cards were created by or are endorsed by the licensee in any way. All elements of docrafts ranges produced under license are protected by copyright, owned by the Licensee and should not themselves be reproduced.

General Guidelines

docrafts products are generally sold for personal and non-commercial use. There is no objection to the sale of items that have been created using elements from the docrafts ranges produced under license, up to a maximum of 100 cards in a twelve month period.

Any item sold must be made by a consumer (and not mass produced) and must not be sold on auction sites.

All elements within docrafts ranges produced under license are protected by copyright law and artwork may not be altered or mechanically reproduced or copied by any means including, without limitation, photocopying, computer scanning, printing, using overhead or opaque projectors, or posted on the Web.

docrafts licensed artwork, trademarks and logos must not be used, incorporated or designed into a company or personal logo, trademark or trade name.

Logos belonging to brand owners (under license to docrafts) or any copyright or trade mark belonging to them may not be used or applied to any item.

No item may promote or make any implication of endorsement by or affiliation with docrafts licensed brands.

Any elements within docrafts ranges produced under license should not be used in a manner which may be considered harmful or bring the licensee into disrepute.

These guidelines may be modified from time to time at the discretion of docrafts

Email from Carte Blanche re: Tatty Ted Craft Products

This is the reply from Carte Blanche regarding the craft products they are retailing through Docrafts and my removed Ebay card.  Does not look as though they are going to give us an Angel Policy.

Dear Paula

Thank you for your email with regard to your ebay listing. You are correct when you say that the Me to You stamps you purchased are a genuine Carte Blanche product. However purchasing our Me to You stamps does entitle you to create your own cards for your own personal use but it does not entitle you to produce items to then sell for your own commercial gain. We would therefore request that you cease this activity and we recommend that you review the guidance on both eBay and the patents office website.

Gorgeous candy to be won

Check out the gorgeous candy at The Ribbon Girl Blog good luck everyone!

A word of warning

Today I have well and truly had my wrist slapped by Ebay, I made this card

to sell on Ebay I listed it on Tuesday and today ebay have removed it because Carte Blanche, copyright owner's of Tatty Ted,  have said it's not a genuine product, okay so they didn't made the actual card but the stamps I used are their genuine product.  I have emailed them, no reply as yet.  I've  looked into it on Docrafts and apparently they have not agreed an Angel policy with Carte Blanche and it's still pending, I emailed Docraft's and the lady who deals with the Angel policy is away until Monday. Angel Policies should be agreed before the product goes on sale or people get caught out,  like I have, assuming  it would already be covered by the exsisting Docrafts Angel policy for licensed images. Okay rant over! lol
