Hi guys,

So, Can I use for example “EA” logo in the preview of my Logo revealer ? Or “BMW”, “PS3”,”Intel”,”Facebook” etc., etc….

Just only in the preview file and not including these logos in the package !

I’d say not. A logo is a company’s property and they control how it is used. They spend years and hundreds of millions building up a certain brand identity. If you work for a brand like BMW , you will receive several sides of brand guidelines about how it is permitted to use the logo. Any devitation from this needs to be approved by several layers of people usually. (which is annoying, since brand guidelines tend to cover print and not moving image).

I would suggest that a high value brand like that isn’t going to be too pleased about seeing its logo used wrongly in a $20 template.

Avoid.

Then you haven’t saw a number of templates using logotypes of facebook, twitter, youtube, myspace, etc. etc.

Social networks are a different thing.They have guidlines for people using their logos and information without having to make a agreement.

Is this means that we can include social media icons in our projects ?

If you could post the guidelines, Unique, that would be great. I’ll put them in the Essential Resources.

Okay,here’s a few:

http://www.facebook.com/brandpermissions/logos.phphttp://www.google.com/permissions/guidelines.html

At first glance these might seem a bit strict,but compared to something like Apple which immediately states “Only Apple and its authorized resellers and licensees may use the Apple Logo” they actually give you a lot of room to play with.
