Walking around campus, Eddie notices that a lot of students sport UCLA t-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, and more. The entrepreneur in him surfaces and he decides to take images of various UCLA logos off the web, stick them on really cheap t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc., and make some extra cash. Can he legally do this?
Awww...you got it wrong. Try again.
Right, Eddie would probably end up in the slammer if he made a lot of money counterfeiting UCLA products. Using registered trademarks without permission would get him in a lot of trouble. In fact, he would not only be violating the law, he would also be violating "UCLA Policy 110: Use of the University's Names, Seals and Trademarks" which states:
"The 'UCLA' trademarks are the exclusive property of the Regents of the University of California. The marks include any trademark, service mark, name, logo, insignia, seal, design, or other symbol or device associated with or referring to UCLA. Besides California State Law, and common law rights, 'UCLA,' 'UCLA Bruins,' 'University of California Los Angeles,' and the UCLA unofficial Seal are protected by federal and international intellectual property law."
