View Full Version : Dressage Test reprinting question?

Jan. 11, 2011, 03:32 PM
Would it be inappropriate/illegal to print the dressage tests on the back of my mailers/postcards? I like to print something useful on my advertisements so they aren't just thrown away, but could be collected so I was thinking of printing one dressage test on each one so you can collect the whole set, but would it be illegal?

That would be illegal unless you had written permission from the USDF and/or USEF (depending on the tests you want to reprint).

Yes, I think the USEF would have something to say about that...

However, a few years ago one of our local insurance companies handed out "notepads" at a show that had a dressage arena printed on every page. Immensely useful for learning tests. I mean, I know I can draw it out myself, but this was all properly to scale and had all the measurements on it. I'm hoarding my last few sheets...

So, if you sent me fliers with dressage arenas printed on the back, I'd keep them!

Yup, illegal, that would be a violation of copyright law.
