Having studied it and having been advised by lawyers on it, it the answer is simple .....'If you use someone else's design to make money then you have to get their approval and subject to their agreement you may have to pay them 'royalties/licence fees'' and in all countries in the world 'Ignorance of the law is no excuse'. Sometimes proving that a design is owned can be difficult.
