On this weeks episode Ian Paget interviews Gordon Firemark, a practicing attorney from Los Angeles to talk about the legal side of logo design, including the difference between copyright and trademarking, the approach to trademark a logo, what action you can take if your work is copied, how and when to use the right symbols on logos, and the ins and outs of contracts too.
