Quite often, a business will engage a graphic designer or third party to create their logo and entire branding for their business.
Once you have your logo finalised, naturally you want to start showing it off to the world (ie, packaging, newsletters, website, social media, business cards, promotional material).
It’s also recommended that you get your logo protected by way of trade mark.
Before you file a trade mark application to protect your logo, you should ensure that you own the copyright in your logo.
If you created the logo yourself from scratch (ie, not using imagery from online sources), of course you will own the copyright.
If a third party has created your logo for you, you should ensure that they agree to transfer the intellectual property over to you.
This can be as simple as an email from the designer to yourself. If you would like us to send you an appropriately worded email, please let us know.
