Can you use collegiate fabric to make items for sale legally?

Technically you can use collegiate fabric to make items for sale legally. There are several court cases that have come about due to this type of use and in most verdicts the judge decided in favor of the use of the fabric as long as the item is clearly marked so that a buyer will know that the particular college did not create the item. This is a verdict of "first buyer usage." Many people avoid the use of collegiate fabric because they would rather not tackle a court case.
