Default Calender

Its getting to be the end of the year. How about getting some pictures for a calendar for next year? We could sell them to support the site? Not to mention have some nice looking cubs to look at all year. We could theme it maybe? IE in the winter have them plowing and blowing, Summer mowing, spring tilling and plowing, fall clean up leaves and what not... The last time I was involved in this one of my trucks made the calender. We had them made up by cafepress.com It worked out good for our forum and I'm sure it would here.

There's a precedent on this:

http://consumerist.com/2008/01/14/fo...-infringement/

This is the letter Ford wrote to the club:

"Although you and your members may own the Ford automobile, you do not own the rights to the trade dress. Taking pictures of any Ford automobiles, placing them on products (i.e. calendar, mugs, t-shirts, etc.) and making them available to the public for sale is an infringement of Ford's intellectual property rights."

"Because of the cachet of the world-famous Ford name, thousands of independent businesses and people make a living from or pursue a hobby related to Ford products and services. Unfortunately, many of these businesses improperly attempt to affiliate themselves with Ford by using Ford trademarks and trade dress (for instance, the depictions or photographs of Ford's distinctively shaped vehicles) in advertising their products and services."

"If a business not affiliated with Ford uses any Ford trademark, whether through the use of photographs, depictions or silhouettes, or any confusingly similar variation thereof, without Ford's express, written consent, then that business is violating Federal and state trademarks laws."

"It is also not sufficient for a business to state that it is not affiliated with Ford but continue to use Ford trademarks without permission. The business is still misappropriating the goodwill and reputation developed by Ford, and attempting to capitalize on or profit from Ford's goodwill and reputation. Even with the best of intentions, unauthorized use of another company's trademark is against the law."

"At times Ford enthusiasts question why Ford is so adamant about policing it's trademarks and preventing unauthorized uses or infringements of them. It is quite common for someone who is using a trademark without permission to say, "I'm giving Ford free advertising, so why does Ford care?" Ford cares because it is important that Ford be able to exercise control over the quality of the product or service bearing Ford's trademarks."

"To protect the value of its trademarks, Ford is obligated to object to and pursue unauthorized uses of its trademarks and trade dress, even if the use of the trademark or trade dress does not appear offensive or objectionable."

But maybe MTD won't mind.

We do calenders every year for a Custom Nissan forum I'm on with no issues. Every year it raises quite alot of money for the sites maintenance fee's and what not.

Ok what about giving them away as free gifts to members that donate so much to the website. We used to do that on a old dodge forum awhile back before some big company bought the forum. Maybe even somewindow stickers

It may just be a matter of obtaining permission from the trademark owner. I'm sure they're not all sticklers like Ford. Or you can just do it and maybe they won't care. I'm just pointing out it's grey area to just print and sell stuff using someone else's trademark and image without asking them first. The fact that other people do it doesn't make it less so.

I'd be in for this, but if we did it, I think it'd be best if people donated to the site, then we sent out calendars for a certain $$ amount of donation. However, this is nowhere near my right to make the call on this

Mods, any thoughts on this?

Do it like the ticket scalpers do. For $15 buy an OCC pencil and we will throw in a free calendar.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
