If you use a logo or brand on your blog or web­site, you should check the brand‘s guides. Most com­pa­nies offer brand guide­lines on how to use their intel­lec­tual prop­erty with­out blam­ing you. For exam­ple, if you use Twit­ter, you agree to Twitter‘s terms of use, includ­ing good brand inte­gra­tion.

Trade­marks work a lit­tle dif­fer­ently from copy­right, because sim­ply print­ing another person‘s logo does not auto­mat­i­cally mean that you have vio­lated the owner‘s rights. Most logos are not copy­righted. Nev­er­the­less, a trade­mark vio­la­tion could lead to legal action to stop the violation.
