Does anyone know what the English
law restrictions are on using a logo?
I am making a video which, inter alia,
mentions a whole bunch of web-based
applications, and I'm including logos
of the companies I mention.
I seem to remember that Wikipedia was
a bit touchy about people using their logo,
but fair use seems to allow it if you are
talking about the logo's owner.
An up to date opinion on this
would be useful.
It would really depends on how you're using it, as logo is copyrighted
& / trademarked, so would fall under the laws regarding "fair dealing"
just like text etc.
Some links that might help (or might not):
