TTA Copyright Issues
I finally got a chance to go back and work on a new Facebook group that I am in the process of creating called the Atheist Pilot's Association. I grabbed my laptop and powered up Adobe Illustrator tonight and threw together a first copy of the logo graphic for the group, attached to this thread.

The problem is, the "A" in the logo is a virtual copy of Seth's TTA bulb logo. I want to make sure that this does not constitute a copyright infringement. If necessary, I can get that changed out, but it looks good as is.

RE: TTA Copyright Issues
I have no answer on the copyright issue. I just wanted to comment that I don't think the current A suits the design. I'm getting a WWII vibe from the wings. Perhaps you could go with a stockier font from around that time?

RE: TTA Copyright Issues
I'm not sure the "A" is Seth's A. It's one of a few symbols representing Atheism itself.

But I could be wrong; I don't know.

Through profound pain comes profound knowledge.

I love it. The red against blue contrast is slick.

Yes it is against copyright laws unless Seth got it from a source that allows people to use it.

You don't need to register or patent or something logo designs and such. They're automatically covered under law.
Here anyway.

No worries. It was created by Diane Reed who released it to the public domain.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: TTA Copyright Issues
It was mentioned in the podcast.
IIRC, the A is public domain, the head/lightbulb is proprietary.
Since he doesn't often come here, you might send an official mail to his mailadres.
Maybe there is a seperate mail for business/bookings, lots of organisations have that. Should be on the frontpage of the website somewhere.
