Constructing the Perfect Logo Logos are the keys to success – the starting point for branding of any kind. But how can you put one together that stands out, and creates an original remember-able icon for your site? Today, we’re breaking down some of the best rated logos on Colin and David’s Logopond, and focusing on what makes them great. We’ll also take a look at more larger, well known logos, and see what has made them work. What is a logo? First, what exactly is a logo? “lo·go (n) – A name, symbol, or trademark designed for easy and definite recognition, especially one borne on a single printing plate or piece of type.” Ah I see, so a logo is something (can be anything) used to represent someone or something. When creating logos on the web, you’re looking for that same effect. Get Your Ideas on Paper The best place to start logo designs, particular if there going to include some kind of symbol, is with a piece of paper and a pencil. Let’s use our logo’s example. Details Matter Let’s first look at our logo again.

Copyright Fundamentals for Genealogy by Mike Goad Since genealogical research inevitably involves copying of information, questions involving copyright often crop up. When an answer is given, it may be less than satisfactory. Sometimes the answer is wrong, sometimes there is little or no explanation, and sometimes the answer isn’t an answer, but a policy statement. While copyright can be very complex and confusing, the parts of copyright law that usually apply to genealogy are really pretty basic. Copyright means copy right Literally, the term copyright means the right to make copies of some product. Making a copy of a work or a portion of a work is its author’s copy right. In the U.S., the right to make a copy of a protected work is a constitutional, exclusive right of the work’s author, except that some limited copying is allowed by provisions of the copyright law. Is it copyrighted? If it’s created today by the original expression of the author and it can be viewed or copied, then it is protected under copyright. Example:

PowerUp Game Story If any one out there is listening, Planet Helios is being destroyed and we need your help! Hundreds of years ago the nations of our planet realized that the side effects from burning fossil fuels for energy were damaging the atmosphere and changing the climate. They joined together to develop and build technologies to create electricity from available renewable energy resources like wind, sun and water power. Meanwhile the planet's citizens–our ancestors– pulled together and pledged to use less energy. This ushered in a Golden Age of energy balance and ecological harmony. But a few generations later energy was plentiful, clean and cheap and conservation was no longer in fashion. Now the damage has been re–done, and then some!

devolucion al dominio publico 10 Big Myths about copyright explained See EFF notes on fair use and links from it for a detailed answer, but bear the following in mind: The "fair use" exemption to (U.S.) copyright law was created to allow things such as commentary, parody, news reporting, research and education about copyrighted works without the permission of the author. That's vital so that copyright law doesn't block your freedom to express your own works -- only the ability to appropriate other people's. Intent, and damage to the commercial value of the work are important considerations. Are you reproducing an article from the New York Times because you needed to in order to criticise the quality of the New York Times, or because you couldn't find time to write your own story, or didn't want your readers to have to register at the New York Times web site? The first is probably fair use, the others probably aren't. Fair use is generally a short excerpt and almost always attributed. See the DMCA alert for recent changes in the law. False. False.
