I have a client that wants to use the Steeler’s logo throughout their production. It is for a local commercial in the Pittsburgh area, and I need to know if this is legal or not. If it is not, how do I go abut getting permission for using this logo? Do i contact the NFL or the Steelers? I am completely ignorant on this issue. Any advice will be great!
The Steeler’s logo is a copyrighted piece of art and may not be used legally without securing the rights (several kinds) for it.
If you are serious, contact the Steeler’s organization and inquire about securing the proper licensing for it – NOTE: It will not be cheap. You may want to talk to an intellectual property attorney about using it as well.
