I make tee shirts. Recently I began to make and sell tee shirts based on the popular "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy. They had phrases such as "Laters, Baby", "Got Grey?" and "Property of Christian Grey" on them. I was selling them on etsy.com. Today I received notification from etsy that many of my listings were removed because a lawyer representing EL James, the author of Fifty Shades of Grey, claims that they are infringing upon the copyright.
Is this true? Can phrases as simple as "Laters, Baby" and the word "GREY" be copyrighted? Thanks so much for any help.Correction: the notice stated that my items were "not authorized by the trademark owner" and that they "incorporate designs, symbols, language, images, or photographs that infringe upon the concerned party's copyright or other intellectual property right."
