Proposed Eagle County logo should be shared publicly
Eagle, CO, Colorado
The proposed Eagle County logo of recent news is no way in danger of theft as a result of public display.
In fact, printing the logo in a well-read paper is among the best ways to protect its ownership.
The creator of a logo owns the logo until they assign it to a client in return for compensation. Publishing the mark, and the audit trail of ownership, provides indisputable evidence as to who has rights to the logo.
If anyone in the community adapted the logo and attempted to use it, an attorney would use the publicity as evidence to prevent such use.
