Selling items made with a Cricut?????

In a previous post I wrote, I was asking about good places to buy Cricut cartridges. Someone commented that you were not allowed to sell items that you make using the Cricut machine on Etsy. That sounded a bit odd and after doing a little research I found this...http://www.provocraft.com/company/legal/angel.policy.php
From what I understood, you can't sell items you make with the Cricut to retail stores and shops, but you can at craft fairs, etc. Does anyone know about this?

Provo craft products angel policy pretty much says you can't do any online selling. I had to pull a couple of my cards because of it.
I wish Fiskar's made more products, because they have no problem with what you make or how you sell when creating with their products.

cricut is on my piss list.
Their angel policy is TIGHT.
LOL! I'm with you. I forget who it is, but one manufacturer also does not allow you combine their dies with any other manufacturer's in an item for sale. I think that's ProvoCraft too. Can't remeber.
Sizzix has an angel policy on their site:

Ya the makers of these intend them to be for personal use - they expect you to use them for your own project and personal use...or at least thats how i take why they made them....so you can make things for yourself and for gifts...that type of thing.

Thanks Mosaico. Very informative. I'd been tempted to get the Cricut, but now will check out those others that allow you to make your own designs. That's what I wanted to do in the first place, and could not find the answer to whether Cricut had that capability.
