Please advise on ETA for approval?

Hey @Manzier ! The item may have IP issues, please provide written consent by Brawndo IP owners, Omni Consumer Products Corporation to proceed with this design. Please email to reconfirm that the NFT/wearable submitted is in full compliance with Decentraland’s Content Policy and Terms of Use and you accept those terms. Thank you!

Hey vrglitch,
I’ve reached out to omni consumer and have not heard back. I will say although their website mentions products such as brawndo and similar, they have had zero posts since 2018.

After some digging though I can see they licensed it directly from Mike Judge “Brawndo: The Thirst Mutilator
Licensed from the Mike Judge film Idiocracy. It’s got what plants crave.”

I’m going to reach out to him directly to see if i can get his ok. Would that work?

waiting for his answer

That would be awesome!

Apparently he isn’t getting back to me and it may take some time.

Would it be possible to change the name of the collection to “The Manzier Collection” and then I’ll redo the item my own Manzier t-shirt? Basically same T-Shirt but with my own name. I own the FQDN for 10+ years and won’t be using any trademarked logos.

If I could somehow re-work this so that we can get it approved without an IP issues so I don’t flush my 500 mana down the toilet. Then I can revist Brawndo and other IP once I figure out how to get the licensing for such stuff and cost.

Really poorly thought out on my part, and I thank you for your time thus far.
If you have any other ideas do let me know.

Thanks Much.

I think I can do a little better this time around too :slight_smile:

Hey @Manzier I’m afraid Collection’s name can’t be changed

Would you concider it an IP issue if I Just put the name brawndo on there in like helvetica without the image? At this point I just want to be able to mint the thing :slight_smile:


It will be an infringement if the name of the registered brand is still there.

How is this DCL approved name “Zenith” not an IP infringment? If Zenith were on a shirt would it be an IP issue?

Copyright protection does not extend to titles, names, slogans or short phrases, the Copyright Office has made that much very clear. You can not copyright your name, the title of your post or any short phrase that you use to identify a work.

The reason is that copyright is designed to protect works of creative authorship, it is not designed to protect how that work is identified in the marketplace, the same goes for people and places. Furthermore, such short phrases rarely meet the requisite level of creativity to be considered for copyright protection.

Hey I’ve accepted the fact that it woudl be a bad idea to mint this wearable so I’m going to see if I can delete it.
I Noticed in the collections section of the marketplace it shows the collection name even though it’s not approved. This is a serious defect and I"ll mention in discord too and here is why:

  1. Messy. Now we show empty collections(there are lots in there) mucking up the place
  2. What if I were a troll with an extra 500 mana laying around? I could create the most offensive collectoin name in the world, submit it for 500 bucks knowing it wont’ get approved and it’ shows in the list on teh website? Could you imaging if these nazi’s and stuff started doing that?

Anyhow let me know how to properly disolve this and if there is any way to get some kind of rain check/forgiviness this time around it would be helpful but I do totally understand and the feedback and lessions learned from this whole process has given me alot of insight and confidence in my next projects.

Hey Team,
I will say i’ve been able to ramp up drastically this week. I’ve removed all potential IP issues and replaced it with my own manzier logo. I really would love it if we can publish it so I can wear it arond the casino.

Not bad eh?

I thank you for your time and re-concideration.

Hey @Manzier this tee is looking awesome! Will make a really nice on-display addition to your store. Just looking at the dates, how is it not approved yet? Would be awesome if it was approved in time for tonight’s casino event, I’ll be buying one for sure! Have you heard anything from the mods? @Malloy Was really helpful with getting my first wearable approved.

@vrglitch any way I can get this approved with the manzier logo mythic(10) for me and my friends only to wear?
I own the manzier logo.thumbnail

Hey I’m afraid you cant, it still going to have the Brawndo brand in the collection name.
