I have a client who's company logo is based on a Microsoft Word Clipart, that logo was made by a third party "graphic designer". My question is, how should I tell my client, legally speaking since the art in wich is based is Microsoft's property. (The logo is actually the same as the clipart with the name of the company right beside it and a hideous yellow #FFF22D color).
Also, they have been using that same logo since day one, so they have like an image made with it: going out of legal subject should I recommend a redesign to the logo or to keep it.
Another problem is that the logo has been enhanced recently bya another "designer": read "Added a drop shadow to it" ¬_¬
We have a great relationship with this client and we're getting tired of seeing them getting riped like that.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
