    Can online companies sue me for using their buttons if I change them just a bit, like the size, and text font.

    For example I'd like to use ebays "search" button so I've took it and change the sizes a bit and the text font, so am I fine or can they still sue me for it?

    If you're worried about it why take the chance? I would not mess with e-bay but that's just me.

    I thought this was BHW dont be a pussy go ahead and use it at least you modified it a bit. FYI companies dont sue you on Monday and you end up in front of a judge on Tuesday judicial processes are very slow. With that said major companies send out cease and desist orders b4 actually suing you it helps build their case against you ie. we sent him a c&d order and he never stopped. A C&D order just lets you know that you fucked up and should stop and comply immediately thats all. If your wondering Ive been getting C&Ds since my parents ran out of AOL hours and got netscape for all types of things (downloads, gimmick infringement ect) but ive never been actually sued in 10+ years. The government works for us learn their system and take advantage its the American Way!
