For valentines day I am going to do a sexercise workout for my site
- but to keep it humerous - i am going to use like barbie/action figures to demonstrate the workouts instead of people.
If i bought the dolls and did this - would it somehow be in breech of thier copyright or branding?
Bacsically can i get away with this?

dont literally buy barbies, get a cheap other version, dont think its a breach of copyright.

kinda like a barbie eric prydz video?

Hi Cameron, I saw a documentry a long time ago about a film maker who made porn type movies with barbies. Nothing dirty really, had summit to do with how humans are just here to make babies. Can't be breach of copyright if you can do that with em. And you're not using the name or that. All those dolls look the same anyway don't they.

Considering you share your name Cam with a certain lady in the US who is quite, er, famous(?) for this sort of stuff you could even dispense with the barbies?

I am joking of course... :D

FHM used to use "barbies" for their position of the month... but they changed to using those artists' dolls. I assumed that decision was made based on some legal stuff.

haha, that's a top idea. maybe you could get an art studeny to draw you some nice cartoons if the barbie isn't quite legal. Or maybe make a deal with one of the talented kids over at the concept art forums to sort you out with computer generated ones. Just some options incase the barbie idea isn't doable.

love this idea, will definetly be checking it out. You could blur out barbies face like they do on tv, or give her a bad dye job, she'l be unrecognisable and no one will be any the wiser!! lol

Site's coming on sweet now Cam. Looks alot sharper than when you first opened it. Ideas are all good too. It's all different like. Spotted a missing C in the news section in openmind hosting part. The word was podcasts. Keep it up mate, its developing nicely.
