For example, say I wanted to start a manga cafe, selling cookies and cakes shaped to look exactly like certain characters. Japan has these cafes, and they pay their workers to dress up as licensed characters. Would this be allowable? Could you use the names of these characters on the menu, or would you need to get permissions to use any names and likenesses in order to continually make a profit off of their creativity? Here in America, those types of laws are very strict concerning copyright and characters.
