Michael Stewart Events
The Dos and Do Nots of Logos, Art, Copyrights and Trademarks
Presentation Date: Wednesday, February 23, 2022
In an educational session titled, The Dos and Do Nots of Logos, Art, Copyrights and Trademarks, Stewart discusses the importance of properly using and protecting intellectual property when putting together awards, gifts, and other personalized products—and answers pertinent questions like:
- Can you reproduce for sale that perfect clip art you found on the web? What if you change it slightly?
- A member of your local Rotary International Club wants plaques. Are you allowed to engrave their logo?
- Can the local university really sue you for putting their logo on one mug?
- Can you get in trouble for putting a famous trademark on a bunch of T-shirts that will be used at a local family reunion?
- And what about the designs you create? Who owns the rights to your creation and how can you keep others from copying it?
