A big concern of Silhouette Cameo and Cricut craft business owners is copyrights and trademarks. Savvy business owners know that you should check copyrights and trademarks on every product design before launching it. If you don’t know how to do this – catch up in this post.
A Cutting for Business reader recently asked me about Bible verses. Specifically, if there were any copyright or trademark implications related to using Bible verses on Silhouette Cameo or Cricut made products. For once, I feel like I have good news: In cases of the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts of the Bible, along with the King James Version (and many others) you can freely use verses in your handmade products because they are public domain. As with anything, there’s some exceptions. You’ll want to steer clear of any recent translations which may be copywritten to the translator/publisher. For example: a quoted verse from a Thomas Nelson or Zondervan Bible publication is copyrighted. If you’d like to use one of those – head to this link for more information.
