If I start a business that cuts and packages an existing material,

This answer was rated:

If I start a business that cuts and packages an existing material, what kind of business am i? I want to cut a particular fabric into smaller pieces and sell packages of them. what kind of agreement do i need to have with the original manufacturer? any?

bizlaw :

Are you just buying for example fabric that you cut into smaller sizes and repackage? Are you using the trademark of the manufacturer or copyrighted fabrics of any type?

Customer:

the product is moleskin. it's actually called kurotex these days. basically, i'm taking large bulk rolls of it, and cutting it into small pieces for use in the broadcast television industry - it's one of those handy on the job type uses.

bizlaw :

There is nothing that restricts your abiility to do as you propose. Once you purchase a product you are generally free to reuse it and sell it as you please. You fall into this category. You do not need any agreement with the manufacturer.

Customer:

what type of company does that make me?

bizlaw :

Are you asking what industrial classification you would fall into?

Customer:

i think so. manufacturer, fabricator, etc.

Customer:

that may be outside of your scope. i appreciate your help. i just wanna make sure i'm doing any thing shady. ;)

Customer:

thanks for your help.

bizlaw :

I do not know that much about your process but if you are cutting the material and making a new product then you could be considered a manufacturer.
