Q. Is it legal for someone to embellish hats with logos on them and sell it?
A: No. These companies have registered trademarks and trade dress filings that cover the logo hats they manufacture. You may for your own use embellish your own hat by one of these brands but if you sell their hats embellished in commerce they will sue you for infringement, obtain an injunction stopping, and you will have to disgorge the profits and pay their legal fees.
