I have never read that before, but not suprised it is there. I do however think that licenced T-shirts and some other things with the logo are long overdue. We have been very patient, going on 3 1/2 years without anything being offered. Guesse we will have to be patient some more, but possibly alittle more vocal on how long patience can last. Possibly this whole thread can be useful in atleast that regaurd. Not trying to stir the pot, but can see the tiny bubbles at the bottom of the pan about ready to boil. Rod

What a sad commentary on the times we live in! I should have been born when Flatheads were new. I'm done on this subject.

I don't see it as stealing anything its more like free advertising for Fordbarn. If someone wanted to hang my company sign in front of their booth I would be more than happy.

I agree, but Ford, Coke and others have set the bar high when it comes to intelectual property, trademarks and other litigation. If I had Ryan's written permission I would have a sign simular to this at most swapmeets. I would even go to the point of having it silkscreened onto a piece of aluminum to be something I could use for several years. I have read no such permission anywhere on the site and am suprised he is currently silent on the matter. Rod

I did a search...and found this info:

http://www.clickandcopyright.com/cop...ringement.aspx

As I read through the page, it seems the item/etc, needs to be sold/resold in essence to be used for profit?

I dunno, I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn last night...

Mike,
Keep in mind that intellectual property attorneys would construe first that you had stolen this website's "brand". That's one count. Then, if you had a booth at Hershey and could be seen as having profited or attempted to profit because you displayed the barn logo, there's another count. To anyone who would be tempted to use Ryan's logo without his express, written permission, I'd suggest reconsidering.

Good points Tim,

Now you know why I would think of representing myself in court!

OK fellas... Here is the deal. I'm totally cool with folks using the logo under a couple of conditions:

1. They get my permission first. Individually.

2. It's not used for profit.
