Resale of clothing

Does anyone know the law regarding buying blank clothing printing on it, changing the tag and reselling for profit? I see all sorts of blank clothing companies online, would they disagree with that?

Generally speaking, if you buy a piece of clothing, you are free to alter it and resell it.

Thanks Jeff,
 
     I have been struggling trying to find information on that for awhile. It's good to know that I am not completely wasting my time.  
    I am assuming unless they have a specific disclaimer that I am agreeing to when I purchase the clothing, that it is likely alright to create a new product out of their original product?

Allan -
 
There are a lot of "maybes" here.  If you are embarking on a commercial venture, you really should consult an attorney directly, in my opinion.
 
My advice is sound, I believe, but I wouldn't rely on anything I say -- or anyone else says -- in these forums.
