CHEAP LOGOS FOR ALL.
YES, you can be the proud owner of a shiny new logo with no more than a few clicks of your mouse. It also has the added benefit of costing you less than a slurp of your favourite hot beverage made from beans or leaves. If you don’t drink those replace it with a nutritional fruit smoothie or a bottle of exotic mountain spring water.
THIS STUPIDITY WILL BLOW YOUR MIND!
To save you time and also having to endure reading this whole waffeling article, the plain fact is YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE RIGHTS TO USE THE LOGO.
I am sorry WHAT?
YEP, that is right. Don’t take our word for it. These services clearly state this FACT in their own Terms & Conditions and it can usually be found under the Intellectual Property Rights or Copyright section.
Just to add some salt with an added squeeze of lemon into the now gaping wound they do not warrant the resulting masterpiece to be fit for purpose either.
Good luck with your shiny new logo.
Millions join the ranks of ill informed online logo generation.
Here it is in plain and simple to understand, black and white, in all its wonder. We really are not making this shit up. We would have thought there would be a law against this type of blatant use of clauses within terms and conditions. NOPE it is legal!
Sod it, that is enough links. We are off to collectively bash our heads against a wall.
DISCLAIMER: (well they are doing it so why can’t we?) Now not being lawyers we are not in any kind of position to fully interpret these services caveats, so suggest you nip off to instruct your local, friendly and highly cost-effective legal advisors and get them to have a quick shifty and deliver their considered opinion.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY & COPYRIGHT

Oh and not forgetting copyright. This link may come in handy on clarifying how this troublesome international law works – https://www.wipo.int/copyright/en/
And finally to wrap this informative article up, we would like to say to all of you so called designers who are using these services for your client’s logos… STOP IT, STOP IT NOW!
PLEASE IGNORE THE PIG. It is been left here for search engines as they like at least one picture to be on a page. Go figure!
