This comment briefly explores potentially dual protection for logos. Although authorship confers no trademark rights, it may generate copyright interests despite the intent of artists and clients. Logos created by full-time employees pose no problem. Ones created by free lance designers, however, pose a risk, if remote, of termination. Whether that generates a serious threat to the independence of freelance artists remains to be seen, but it can be reduced if not elimated by artists who choose to be employees of their own businesses.
