Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
If they are not officially licenced then yes
This is called passing off
Where a customer could get confused thinking it was a genuine Disney product when it is not
If Disney licenced the products then they are ok
But if they are imitation or not licenced then Disney can sue
Indeed Trading Standards could investigate and prosecute for fake goods
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you. They are being classed as 'handmade' items which take images from the Internet and are printed out and framed or made into cards or jewellery. They are not official Disney products. It's a shop in a fairly large shopping centre and I just find it strange that someone can just print things off the Internet and sell them.
Do you think trading standards will investigate if I bring it to their attention? I find it sad that people can basically sell images for a profit when they don't belong to them.
