"copyright doesn't mean anything dude, chill out, people use mario and images like that all the time, I'm not claiming that i 100% made up mario, therefore im not infringing on anything to do with the copyright. So don't even say that dude and learn about copyrights.

There is a thing called "fair use" where people can use any character for general use in a spoof or for other general use, as long as you don't use it for your own use in games and etc, however you cannot claim that you made it 100% yourself. For example my design, the mario is not infringing on copyrights because I do not claim it isn't mario. Of course it is mario, I used it because everyone loves mario, and it is a huge seller for nintendo therefore I used it to draw users to coming to the site maybe to get a mario game.

I'm not angry bro, I'm just saying if this is a serious contest, and the winning logo will actually get put up on Cashle.com the owners of Cashle will not want a Nintendo character in their logo lol. I'm sure they don't want lawyers from Nintendo coming here requesting they take the logo down or pay a fine.

A copyright infringement doesn't mean you claimed you made it. Copyright infringement (or copyright violation) is the unauthorized use of material that is covered by copyright law, in a manner that violates one of the copyright owner's exclusive rights, such as the right to reproduce or alter somebody's work.

Ill give you a few examples of fair use so you can decide if its fair use or not.

Uses That Are Generally Fair Uses:
Criticism and comment, News reporting, Research and scholarship, Nonprofit educational uses, & Parody. Basically anything else is a copyright infringement.

Its ok if you make some sort of graphic art with a Nintendo character because you can say simply say its for educational use. But if the owners of Cashle actually put a Nintendo character in/as their logo, they will need permission from Nintendo to do so.

The online dictionary says specifically what a parody is...

a. A literary or artistic work that imitates the characteristic style of an author or a work for comic effect or ridicule. See Synonyms at caricature.

Hmm? It is a parody. AS it is a artistic work that imitates the characteristic style of a work for comic effect. Don't come here trying to flame if all you here is to take a honest contest and turn it into something bad, go. Otherwise, make your entry and take a shot at winning.

This is to funny, this is not a serious contest at all and the owners have nothing to do with this contest. It's held by me and the winner will never have a chance to place this logo on cashle.com

LOL thanks for the laugh too
