Copyrights, Trademarks and Infringements … Oh My! (Part 2)

The Internet is a wonderful thing. I pretty much live on it. It puts the collective knowledge of mankind at your fingertips. It also makes it very tempting and easy to lift a logo, art, image or some prose. It happens all the time. There’s a myth floating around that if something is on the Net, it’s in the public domain. Not so. Even if it doesn’t carry a ©, it’s probably still protected by copyright. But, stuff still... CONTINUE READING

Copyrights, Trademarks and Infringements … Oh My! Part 1 (Poll Article)

Copyrights, Trademarks and Infringements … Oh My! Part 1 (Poll Article)

As graphic designers, we deal in concepts and ideas. But, we also deal in intellectual property. Intellectual property (IP) is the area of law that addresses intangibles such as copyrights, trademarks and patents. For designers and other visual artists it concerns protecting the work we do, for both ourselves and, often, our clients. And herein lies the problem. Most designers don’t think about rights, unless they’re a Landor or some other huge design firm. That is to say, they... CONTINUE READING

The PGA Championship’s New Logo is a Hole in One

The PGA Championship was born in the mind of department store owner Rodman Wanamaker, who saw the merchandising possibilities in a professional golfers’ organization.
