    Hey, I was wondering if is it legal to put 'as seen on Oprah" (just en example) signs on your e commerce website if

    1) The product was really featured in Oprah show
    2) You don`t use her logo, just write 'Oprah show' in your sexy comic sans font. (Also, would a logo make it illegal?)
    3) You put a disclaimer on saying that you have no connections to Oprah.

    Thank you.

    - This would cover you in the "Truth in Advertising"
    2) You don`t use her logo, just write 'Oprah show' in your sexy comic sans font. (Also, would a logo make it illegal?)
    - Use of a protected logo without permission on a for profit manor is an infringement.
    3) You put a disclaimer on saying that you have no connections to Oprah.
    - The disclaimer is a must and I would add a link to the episode the product appeared on.

    "O" may not like it but you should be covered. Best of luck to you and your promotion!
