At Pixsweet, we want to make your ice pop dreams come true. In order to achieve this, you can upload your own artwork to our site to fully design and customize your own ice pops! It’s your responsibility to ensure that the image that you upload is freely available for this use, and that images uploaded are not protected by copyright, trademark or any other law that prohibits this use. Intellectual Property Law is vast and complex. To help you to stay on the right side of the law, we’ve prepared a very basic overview of copyright, trademark and right of privacy below. Please use Pixsweet responsibly - if you are not sure that the artwork you’d like to use can be freely used to create new products, then please choose another artwork.

A trademark is a symbol or word/s legally registered or established by use as representing a company or product. A trademark allows consumers to identify the company that is ultimately responsible for a product. Examples of trademarks include the Nike Swoosh (logo) and Coca Cola’s ‘Taste the Feeling’ slogan.

The right of publicity, often called personality rights, is the right of an individual to control the commercial use of his or her name, image, likeness, or other unequivocal aspects of one's identity.
We want to create Kanye pops just as much as you do! But Kanye has the right to decide whether his name or likeness will appear on a product, including our pops.
The right of publicity is part of the larger right of privacy that applies to all people. This means that each person has the right to control the use of their image and name in a commercial context.
Pixweet will not create pops in the shape of Kanye’s face (or Kim’s or Taylor’s for that matter) or name for profit without written instruction from the individual, or from their agent.
