Sometimes companies just step in it. Blue Jean Teddy and Art Impressions Licensing match this description. If it weren't so pathetic
it would be funny. What makes it pathetic is that people are being hurt by a clueless VeRO member (isn't that redundant?) who
gloomed onto what he thought was a great idea only to have the First Sale Doctrine thrown in his face.
Brad Bailey represents Art Impressions Licensing, who in turn represents Springs Industries, who in turn owns the rights to Blue Jean Teddy. Brad Bailey began shutting down auctions with Blue Jean Teddy in them. Why? He really doesn't know. So why did he start? He really doesn't know.
First contact from Brad Bailey, who represents Art Impressions Licensing, was August 13, 2004. He shut down a whole lot of eBay auctions in one fell swoop. To his credit, he did contact sellers to establish communication. He must have been new at it or not a corporate lawyer.
It looks like someone told Brad, "Stop the infringing auctions" without determining if Brad was qualified to do so. So, what else is new? To most VeRO members, a good faith belief is whatever they want to believe. The law and case histories just get in their way.
Art Impressions Licensing is located at 23586 Calabasas Rd, Calabasas, CA 91302. Telephone is 818-591-0105. They list Cindy Bailey as CEO and Brad Bailey as Operations. Could Cindy and Brad be related? Since Brad doesn't appear to be too bright it's a good thing a family member helped him get this job.
