    Concerning a G Shock hat....

    Does anyone know what the legality is concerning taking the G Shock logo, and putting it on stuff?

    We have lots of companies here in the US that will put logos on shirts and hats and about anything else. I used to get a lot of stuff for an engineering association I used to work with.

    If we could take the logo and put it on a hat, we could buy a BOX and distribute them.

    I have no idea on costs... but depending on legal issues.. it may be do-able. I dont have the kind of loose money around to simply go for it...so maybe a pre-order thing would work... but dang, seems like a lot of us would like a plain black cap with the G Logo on it.

    PLEASE do not respond with design issues... if this were something I were heading up, (PERSONALLY) I would do it... You know? pick the logo, the hat and get it done... then take orders LOL... Design by committee rarely works. Designing a forum watch never took off... but Im thinking a hat would be a little easier LOL... Come one it would only cost 15-20.00

    Is this something to pursue? LOL It may be easier to ask forgiveness than permission... LOL...

    Here is another thought that is MUCH more risky... design our own WUS / G-Shock logo and make our own hats...

    Feel free to PM me directly if you want. I dont want to step on copywrite laws, and dont want to dish out tons of money for a box of hats I never wear LOL... But we used to get custom hats made all the time. They arent expensive and they look UBER cool.

    Heck, I have a buddy that has "one of" hats made all the time!

    As long as they are not made for resale, you would be fine. But your idea probably falls under the whole resale idea.

    Not sure exactly but I think it's ok to do, as long as you aren't selling them....

    Well does that mean profit or just covering costs? LOL... I love you guys, but im not dishing out for free hats LOL.

    At the same time IF i were to take something like this on, I wouldn't be looking to profit.

    I am not an attorney, ( I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night!) but I am pretty sure that as long as you are not making a profit it....you should be OK.

    i guess if you'd have kept it quiet (PM's), nobody would be any the wiser..

    i recently wrote to Carlsberg as i was making a scale trailer, and they denied me photo's, as i didnt have the necessary rights to put their logo on it...

    so i obviously gave up on that idea...
