VITORIA DE LERMA WISHES YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS!
But… whishing Merry Christmas is not always legal
During these days before Christmas we will receive several greeting cards, either physically or electronically. Often, these greeting cards contain parts of films, books, illustrations or songs whose use implies an infringement of the Intellectual Property Rights of their original authors.
Whether it exist a certain permissiveness of the authors when the users of their content are individual persons, as it can be understood they make an innocuous use of the creation and there is no bad faith nor seeking of profits, the businesses may expose themselves to unnecessary risks.
Ultimately, if you are an individual person or a business, it is convenient to design your own greeting card, in which you might include free images. This way, you ensure that whishing Merry Christmas this year will not cause you a big headache next 2019.
