Anybody copyright a logo before?
Do you need to?
Do you usually leave that to someone else?...the client?
What's the best way to do this?
There's a mountain of info on the net about this.
Just wondered if anybody knew the standard way...or the most approriate way to do this.
Thanks in advance.
i would say it's the client responsibility, other than that, no idea.
sorry i'm not much help
1) Search GOOGLE for copyrights.
2) Download the copyright form (PDF).
3) Complete the form and mail in with your logo references and check.
4) Charge your client 4X-10X the application fee, plus for your time.
post the design to yourself in an envelope. keep the envelope sealed until you need it in court.
Isn't stuff pretty much copyrighted by default?
On the other hand, trademarking is something you might want to do and is a much more expensive/ time-consuming process.
trademark it, it'll cost you about £84
copyrighting isn't necessary- as it's pretty easy to prove who has the original sketches/files.
trademarking though is something else- and should be done client side.
Thanks all...I see I need to review the finer points between copyright & trademark.
