By default, WordPress does not support the SVG images. If you would like to know how to upload an SVG image onto your website, please refer to this document. While creating a logo, you will need to understand the basic concept of the copyright laws and restrictions on using reusable content. In this document, we will explain just the same.
Threshold of Originality
This is a principle in copyright law that is applied to determine whether a certain work, or a portion of it, can be protected by copyright. It is employed to separate the latter from the former when determining whether a work is sufficiently unique to be protected by a copyright. While creating a SVG logo, you need to ensure that the logo is unique and contains no copyright protected items. If the logo is not a unique one and does not meet the minimum threshold of originality, it should not be uploaded to your website.
While some of the common items may not be protected by the copyright laws, other non-copyright restrictions may apply to them. While all content on Commons must either be in the public domain or be permissible to use under the applicable license(s), some content may be subject to extra legal restrictions depending on the situation or the manner it is used.
These restrictions may be brought about by laws governing trademarks, patents, personality rights, moral rights of writers, political censorship, or any other number of legal issues that are unrelated to the work’s copyright conditions.
Commons views non-copyright restrictions as matters for photographers/uploaders or reusers and does not consider them to be grounds for the removal of works from Commons, with the exception of some restrictions relating to photographs of identifiable people and some restrictions that make it illegal for Commons to host certain works.
Re-using an open content
It is possible to reuse content covered by open content license without having to get in touch with the licensor(s), but bear in mind that some licenses demand that the original creator’s credit be given; others demand that the specific license be acknowledged when utilizing (which, in some circumstances, includes declaring or linking to the license’s conditions). Finally, some licenses demand that any modifications you make to the work be equally freely licensed.
A trademark is a type of intellectual property that consists of a recognisable sign, design, or expression used to distinguish a source’s products or services from those provided by other individuals or companies.
A trademark may be owned by a person, a business, or another sort of legal entity. A trademark may appear on the actual product, a label, a coupon, or a box. Service marks are a term that is occasionally used to describe trademarks that distinguish services.
In return for publishing an enabling disclosure of the invention, the owner of a patent is granted the legal right to prevent others from creating, using, or selling the invention for a set amount of time.
In the majority of nations, patent rights are governed by private law, and in order to enforce them, the patent holder must file a lawsuit against a third party who violates the patent. Patents are an important source of competitive advantage in some industries, but they are irrelevant in others.
Personality rights, sometimes known as the right of publicity, allow an individual to limit how their name, image, likeness, or other unmistakable identifiers are used for commercial usage. According to the jurisdiction, the validity of personality rights of publicity may continue to some extent after the death of the individual since they are typically regarded as property rights rather than personal rights.
Generally recognised in civil law states and, to a lesser extent, in some common law jurisdictions, moral rights are those of authors of copyrighted works.
The right to privacy is a component of many legal systems that aims to regulate public and private actions that jeopardize people’s privacy.
