I would maybe ask someone at a local fabric store or something.  They may know.  I seem to remember that someone told me that most of it is licensed and you can't do it without paying license fee's.  Maybe email one of the fabric sellers online?  Hancock?

And please let us know if you find out.  Cheesy

licensed fabrics like munki-munki fabric? is that what you mean?

you're not allowed to, if what i'm asking is correct. you can only use the fabric for personal use. otherwise i have no idea, sorry!

I just wonder if everyone is doing it illegally then....because people do it all the time.  I wonder how many are caught and what the consequences are.

Check out this site.  This lady sells licensed fabric items on ebay.  One might say that this is a gal who fought the law and won.  She gives some tips and advice on how she did it.

This might give you some food for thought.

man, that's one rough site to look at!

maybe m&m's are licensed differently? some companies are licensed to exclusive limits or something, like the munkimunki stuff i mentioned before. say for instance, you can purchase their fabric and make some pj's out of them, and you could visit their website and buy the same pair, but munkimunki's online store is the only place that can sell them... if that makes sense? or amy butler. you can buy her fabric, make some things out of it as long as they are not exactly her patterns and material or you market them under her name, and you can sell the item. where as you can purchase m&m fabric  or items just about anywhere on the planet...

i really don't know how it all works, licensing is confusing! i think conglomerates and monopolies and branding all has to do with whether or not you can or can't sell a certain item. but don't take my word for it! it's just a guess. (also extremely confusing.)  Embarrassed

the best bet might to be contacting whoever makes the fabric directly.
hopefully you can get the information you're looking for!

i guess i'm not seeing how this helps the info? all this person/people have done is file lawsuit after lawsuit against major corporations. i can't be bothered reading it, maybe that's why it's not making sense to me. i don't know.

Since you don't have time to read it, I will summarize it for you.

They were sued by companies with licensed fabrics.  They have been sued or sent letters of intent to sue my many companies such as Disney, NFL, MLB, Nascar, King, Shabby Chic, etc. 

Taberone is not an attorney.  She is just one gal at home sewing her little fingers to the bone and selling her products online and at shows, etc.  She did the research and outlines her research in her website.  She filed countersuits, researched the law, fought these big companies in court and won all of the battles involving companies with licensed fabrics.

That is what the website explains and it goes on to tell others how to win IF and when they are sued or receive letters from companies with licensed fabrics.  She quotes court cases and legal documents that she has taken the time to research and write up to share with others who want to sell products with licensed fabrics.  It is her experience and she shares her knowledge with anyone who wants it or needs it.

So if you don't have the time or are not so inclined to read it, I suggest you bookmark it for future reference.  I hope you never need to use the info on those pages, but if you do, you will have it readily available and can save yourself a lot of hassel, grief and legal fees.
