Clipart usage rule for contest forum?
If it is possible please consider this rule for the contest forum:
"Do not use clipart in your logo designs. All entries should be your own unique creation. "
There is no rule stating about clipart usage in logo contest, I think this rule should be stated to avoid any grey area.
any suggestions or ideas from other designers?
Clip Art in a Contractual Agreement
As a contest holder I was invited to give my comment on this issue. I had not thought that any designer would use anything that would put me in jeopardy...legally so I never looked for such things but now..... I shudder to think of the consequeces that I might have had if I had accepted a design that would cause me any unforseen future trouble. Actually, I think that if clip art is used it should be revealed to the contest holder so that they can determine for themselves but to slip one in secretly, how would we know? I would NOT want to be sued thus no clip art for me!
