Yes, this is almost the same response the NFL gave me when they ripped my YouTube highlights down and when I asked if I could host them at PackersHome.com instead. They basically said if I receive no payment, they wouldn't come after me. Pretty much what the Packers said.
That is excellent news..
So basically though it just shows the NFL's greed. If you are making a buck off their name.. they want a cut. If not.. we care less. [grin1]
I have put in another email to them. I think by his response that means no shirts, no mugs, no bumper sticker, no car decal, etc ... which the reason I haven't pursued that is fear of infringement. I have the designs done for shirts, hoodies, polo and coffee mug on various sites, but haven't pulled the trigger.
