Is "Talking Heads" trademarked?
Hi, I have a heat press, and I found a font on dafont that looked like that font they used on the Talking Heads true stories album, so I recreated the album art as accurately as I could with Photoshop CS3, and made it into a personal shirt (seriously its sooooo hard to find 70s band merch). I have an etsy, and I was wondering if it would be legal to sell copies of this shirt that I made? Or would I get into legal trouble for doing that? This is a serious question.
Seriously I need to know if its illegal since I made it myself?
If it's a spitting image of the album art, The Talking Heads' people might have an issue with that.
Just using the font for something that relates to/refers to Talking Heads songs or the band is fine since you're not using or emulating their work.
