Pretty in Pink Posted August 20, 2012 Share Posted August 20, 2012 I am in the process of starting my own business. I'll be selling handmade children's clothing. I'm starting on Etsy but will likely also do local craft fairs, post my business card around town, etc. I chose the name Oliver & Mae for my Etsy shop -- except that instead of writing it that way it looks like this: oliver + mae I invested in graphic design for my shop & print materials. I ordered business cards and custom tags to sew into my clothing. Those things cost me $200. Then this morning I see this site linked on Pinterest: oliver + s I didn't copy their name or logo, but there it is. They are very, very similar. Crazy similar. I see that. WWYD? Do you think I'm treading dangerously close or outright violating some sort of copyright if I use the name and logo I had planned? I don't have the money to rework everything at this point. I either use what I've paid for or I go without or print my own. It won't be nearly as nice as what I've already bought. :sad: I thought about using the print materials I have until they run out and then having everything reworked with an ampersand instead of the + ... what do you think about that? It could be several months or more. I ordered 100 of everything. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
