Copyright and Trademark

I contacted the estate of the late Theodor Geisel. This year GlitterSniffer sold a Dr. Seuss Collection. Included in this collection was Suess Pink, which has now been recalled as one of the unsafe pigments. Apparently, Dr Seuss Enterprises takes their guardianship of the Seuss legacy very seriously.

I sent an email to drseuss@drseuss.com. I briefly outlined the situation, including links to both the product and the recall. I also advised them that their name was now not only associated with unsafe, unlicensed product, but with a company who is suspected of selling unhygienic products and conducting alleged charity fraud.

I will also be contacting Random House, who also holds trademark and copyright rights to all things Seuss related at:
Permissions & Copyright Department
Random House
1745 Broadway, 3rd Floor
New York, NY 10019
It is not my intention at this point to contact Crayola, Harry Potter, or any other copyrighted/trademarked collections, except for the owners of True Blood, as they also had a product associated with their name that was recalled as unsafe. There is scant information, however, on the True Blood collection and until I can find specifics of GS selling it (and not just people using it for EOTD's) I am not prepared to take that steps as yet.

  1. What about this page? http://www.facebook.com/pages/Glittersniffer-Cosmetics/85929629769?v=photos&sb=8#!/photo.php?fbid=459703284769&set=a.459703219769.250655.85929629769&pid=5276426&id=85929629769 It seems she just plops swatches up and charges right off the fan page?

  2. Thank you so much! I combed their photo albums, did google searches and nothing. I will admit that all this stuff is starting to blur together because there's just so much information. I will get right on that. :-)
