I wonder how long before you get a cease and desist from Ducati, then Admin here about selling without being a site vendor/sponsor whatever..

Thanks!
It's fan art. Many brands allow for people to create these things. For them is free advertising and they are happy about that.
About the admin on the forum, I mean it's not like I'm selling viagra. But he can always speak with me.

Fan art is interesting.
I guess it will depend if D think you are selling stuff that diminishes sales of similar stuff under their brand name.
E.g. T shirts.

Then there was software named DucatiDiag, which had to be renamed and ended up as JPDiag.
Same software, different name. Probably competed with software that was "exclusive" to D and/or their dealers.

Just understand that Redbubble has teamed with many brands so you can design fan art. If you upload something from a company they haven't partnered with your work is automaticly taken down. There is no point in trying to be a lawyer here. If it's there it's because I can.

My guess is you’re violating a whole bunch of stuff. Brands protect themselves from this. Especially when you are using their brand emblem. You didn’t design it, you transferred an existing design to your products. Sell them quick before they catch up with you.

If this is so much of a problem I'll just delete the post. DONE! I was just sharing something interesting done in partnership with the Ducati Brand and Redbubble. I'm really not into the discussion of how that works and everyone thinks he's a lawyer here. So hopefully I'm not in anyones way now.

I don't purchase any non-authentic or counterfeit stuff either..

In the US...creating fan art usually ok, publishing it questionable depending if there is a commercial motive, selling it...definitely illegal. I learned this after 30 seconds of Googling.
Unless there is a partner program with the brand right? Well, that's the case. I really don't want to make me look smart or get into any discussions. I'm old enough to understand how the Internet opinion makers work. I have these things for sale, there is no copyright issue whatsoever. But because no one understands how these partnerships and deals are done everyone thinks that knows better. That's why I deleted my post. This was about sharing LEGAL products Ducati lovers may like, not to start a conversation about everyones opinion on the matter. Now you can ask Ducati to produce a blanket just for you. You should also understand that brands get their cut when a product with their brand is created and sold. If you think for a second and put yourself on the brand side you'll understand the advantages. There are many designers that want to pay omage to your brand and can use print on demand services do produce products you don't sell, like duvets for instance. What do you do? You cut a deal and make money with this and spread the brand. Ducati is first and foremost a motorcycle brand. They are not making money selling ducati clocks for your kitchen, but they can sell a 1098 to someone because they saw the clock and triggered a choice when buying a motorcycle. That's why brands are partnering with these programs. Merch is far from being their first stream of revenue. If someone was selling louis vuitton shirts or any other print on demand from clothing brands then I would agree. This is happening all over with movie titles, computer games, etc. Brands are more than happy to stop a fight against copyright if they get a cut or get free advertizing.

Wow, this would look awesome with my race car bed! Now all I need is a lava lamp and I’ll be beating the ladies off with a stick!

Which I'm guessing you don't have?

Was it, really? Seemed more like 'selling' than 'sharing'?

I'm guessing this ain't the case here, which just makes it regular ol pirating.

Best way to avoid internet discussions and opinions is to stay off the internet.

Yes I do, through the partner program.

If I was just selling I wouldn't take my link off. I designed those products for me and decided to share. The margins are ridiculous. You don't even make any money with this.

This is exactely the case, Ducati is a motorcycle brand, not a clothing brand.

That's why this was my last message.
