If you think it's OK to download team logos off the Internet, use them for merchandise, and then sell them – think again. Any logo belonging to a particular sports team is protected against reproduction and imitation from other parties. If you want to use a team logo you must get permission to use it. If you're interested in using a team logo on merchandise or any other material, you'll have to contact the licensing department of that team and get permission. One way to find the terms and contact information for licensing team logos on a product is by going directly to the Website of a sports team.
