Goodluck, I’m sure your sports flyer will be great even without the logos. :D

Unfortunately, no. It’s still considered an infringement because the trademarks are the property of someone else and you need their permission to use it.

The Copyright, Products and Trademark Usage Help Guide flowchart is a good place to check for Copyright and IP questions :)

Hi Everyone, I read the same article :)

I researched the usage terms for the Getty Viewer. It is intended to be used for non-commercial web content. For example, if you wrote a personal blog post and wanted to include an editorial image, you can use the Getty viewer to embed a non watermarked image in the post. It also has an artist credit that you cannot remove. The Getty Viewer can’t be used in stock items and you cannot use the photos in your preview images.

Embedded Viewer Where enabled, you may embed Getty Images Content on a website, blog or social media platform using the embedded viewer (the “Embedded Viewer”). Embedded Getty Images Content may not be used: (a) for any commercial purpose (for example, in advertising, promotions or merchandising) or to suggest endorsement or sponsorship; (b) in violation of any stated restriction; (c) in a defamatory, pornographic or otherwise unlawful manner; or (d) outside of the context of the Embedded Viewer.

If you’re looking for photos to use in a preview, we allow authors to use PhotoDune images, provided you credit the photographer/author with a linkback from your item description. You can find more information here – http://notes.envato.com/authors/using-photodune-images-in-your-marketplace-files/

Hi Everyone, As part of the Copyright and IP policy of the Envato marketplaces, the use of social media icons is permitted in 3 cases.

  1. If the social icons are part of a pack of icons in the Icons category.
  2. The icons are a key part of the design. Example: An interface or blogging theme that allows users to link their social profiles and/or share content with social networks
  3. Item previews can use social media icons to show compatibility. Example: a Facebook timeline cover that uses the Facebook icon in the preview.

If you’re preparing a design for print and include social icons as a design feature, the icons are not linking to the site they’re for and often are not being used in a way that the social network intended (to link to their site).

There should be no social media icons in print templates, unless the social media platform that the icon belongs to has usage guidelines that clearly indicate the use of their icon is permitted for print designs.

You can read about Envato’s trademark guidelines here – http://s3.envato.com/resources/legal/product-trademark-help-guideline.pdf

Another issue I would like to bring into attention is the multiple versions of the, practically, same logo, submitted by the same user, but with minor changes (like an extra line or arch, a circle or a few circles in different positions etc.).

The logo category is a bit tricky because the designs are sold as single uploads and can’t be added to packs like items from other categories are (icons, vectors and so on).

Thank-you for the feedback, I’ll look into the situation. :)

@IngeniousArtist – I was playing the same DLC! It’s a shame I had to give up so early, I really love the way the story is told and the changing environment was fun. Mr Torque makes me laugh so much. I’m Maya lvl 33. http://envato.d.pr/3ykr – I use steam cloud to save my games, it’s come in handy more than a few times.

@IngeniousArtist – I need to finish the main storyline before I can get back to the DLCs, I found I was fighting bad-guys at a much higher level than I was and it was taking up all my money and ammunition (not that there’s any problem with finding more ammunition, it’s everywhere!) Still, lots of fun :D

Being able to use a variety of names with the Logo Template is a great way to create your file. Work on the design so that people with short business names and long business names can use the design without having to change the layout too much.

Also, the shapes and lines should be neat and tidy when you zoom into the design, this is so the logo will look nice from the smallest to largest format. People will use your logo template for things as small as business cards and as large as signs and posters. Wobbly lines and too many points in your vector shapes can cause the design to look a bit unusual when it’s zoomed in or enlarged.

Also, gradients and special effects can over complicate the design and make it hard to use in different print and screen formats.
