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?

Thanks
Josh

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 www.manzier.com 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.
Josh

P.S.
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:

Thanks
Josh

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

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