    A friend has a business (yes, a friend, not me) buying shirts and manipulating them to their own design. Are there any licensing issues based on this? And on-selling these shirts - are there any financial implications?

    Are there any website or information that anybody here knows about?

    How close to the original designs are they?

    They are the originals with modifications. They're just ripped, stretched, and added to. I equate it to buying a car and changing it around so it looks different but the original design is still there. But legally I'm not entirely sure. I mean, they've bought the shirts so they're not printing them themselves. So in that sense the correct person has made their money.

    I think that's perfectly legal. You're reselling something and charging for your modifications, and you're not infringing on anyone's copyright or bootlegging anything at all since you're using the original legal merch that you legally bought. (When I say "you" I mean your friends who run the business of course).

    It's worth double-checking it, but I'm pretty sure I'm right. :)

    Sounds perfectly OK to me too. It would be like Xena taking one of her old Motley shirts, ripping holes in it and stuff and flogging it on eBay.
