As with any business there are certain risks that are incurred just by doing business. We would like everyone's logo to be made available to the public. However, we can not assume risk for people who have copied other individuals intellectual property and are using them as their own.
When uploading a logo please make sure that you own it, and you have all rights to your intellectual property. We are not going to do a trademark search on every logo submitted so that is your responsibility as the business owner to do so. If you believe there could be a chance that you are using someone else's property or design, please do not upload that logo.
When you upload your logo you will see this message again, and by submitting your logo you have agreed to the agreement below.
