At first glance I was going to jump on this plastic objet d’art. I love this sort of stuff. The seller claims to have been removed from the Chris Craft Factory. Which does make sense, since I cant imagine anyone else needing this huge logo in their repair shop, or dealership. These are not cheap to produce.
So here is the question. Is it fixable? Is it even worth fixing? Is it too large? If you put it up in your ..my barn.. am I now a Chris Craft dealer? Factory? If I place it outside of a barn, I am advertising and thus violating any trademark or copyright issue. Since the use of a logo like this has laws protecting it. Especially since the logo is a currently protected logo mark. So you are only technically be able to use it in your barn, not outside.
Typically when a sign like this is removed, the corporation insists that it be destroyed and discarded. Okay, okay, it’s just a cool old sign. And I don’t think Chris – Craft would issue you a cease and desist for putting it up in your barn.
But I needed a story today, and some fun comment drama. So have at it. It’s a rainy day here and well.. YOU CAN CLICK HERE AND SEE THE LISTING ON EBAY.
