Probably a daft question but I was curious....

Just completed an assignment at college, and for the final piece I made a Meat Loaf "themed" t-shirt - it's black, blue and white from the Bat II cover and it's got the Meat Loaf 'M' on the bottom right hand corner ( it all makes a lot more sense if you read my assignment and see the pic! lol )

Anyways, crossed my mind about copyright, as I've used the M from the logo??? The purpose of the top was purely for my assignment, not to be sold or suchlike, and my Mum commented about wearing it for shows as no one else would have one, just I wondered where I stand on things like that, or would I be dragged out of an arena kicking and screaming because I'd copied Meat's logo !!!?!?

You might still get dragged out of an arena kicking and screaming but not cause of making your own Meat Loaf t shirt. :D

Well, I remember that FB was not very happy with a particular site from a tribute band cause they used his logo. And "not very happy" is an understatement.

Surely if there is no financial gain he wouldn't mind!

I am not so sure. If we all show up at concerts with our own homemade Meat Loaf t-shits, his merchandise outlets will have no profits.

Just to clarify - I'm not doing that lol I made it purely as part of an assignment, but the issue of copyright came up in conversation!

It is definately one of the most tricky area's in this business, Lucy!

Feel free to ask here. If anyone knows in a particular situation, he/she will for sure help out!!

Even if there was a copyright law against it I don't think Meat would care that you are expressing your 'love' for him. If it was a hate t-shirt then it may be a different story...lol

I have to take some pics to put in the portfolio so I'll get them on here when i do - just to say though, it's not a Meat Loaf top like you'd buy at a show, it's based on the colours etc - it makes a lot more sense if you read my work! lol

Some of you have been so lucky and admire my car :lol:
For all of you out there who haven't (yet); it does carry 2 very large prints on the front; one on the left and one on the right side of the RVM.
Saying: Meat and the other one: Loaf.

Yes, the biggest violation of copyright. But I can not think of any other nutcase to drive around like that!
I am happy to say though that at least 3 more albums have been sold because of it; and so often people tell or ask about Meat. Since that was the exact reason for doing so, I am happy and will continue ''advertising'' our Meat Loaf!! :))

That's GREAT, Ankie. Now there's two of us. I've been driving around in the Netherlands with my very own "Meat-mobiel" for over 2 years now: :lol:

As far as copyright goes: Meat's logo is copyright-protected.
I used a different letter: Deutsche Gotic, it resembles the logo, but is nog quite the same.
