    Using the Hammock Forums Logo.

    Hey everyone,

    As we've all noticed, HF is really growing! Along with the increase in the number of members, the enthusiastic demand for HF labeled and logo'd gear has also grown. Right now there are biners, flags, the Cafe Press store, etc. That's great, and as time goes along, we're confident there will be even more...

    Going forward from now though, we ask that anyone who wants to use the HF name and logo on gear please contact one of the Admins or Mods first for approval. We don't want to stifle any projects or creativity and we are always in favor promoting the forums in a positive way...but we do need to be sure that the HF name is not misused. Also, we can help out with making the gear available to all (stickies, announcements, etc).

    Thanks for your cooperation.

    Happy Hanging!

    And here I was just about to roll out the HF branded 32 oz recycled Gatorade bottle... Fill a niche market and reduce waste to the landfills all in one swell foop.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Does that mean I have to have the HF logo tattoo removed from my derrière?

    Would some sort of Creative Commons license be appropriate?

    Not necessarily. The HF name and logo are copyrighted.

    Like HC4U said, this announcement isn't about stopping the use by the members here, but rather just letting the staff (attroll in particular) be aware of and sign off on items it is used on.

    Thanks for the clarification. Guess I just overlooked the (c) symbols.

    It's on the bottom of every page, just below the footer links bar.

    okay... now bear with me here... this is all hypothetical but I use the HammockTV intro on all my vids and I have hammockforums.net on the title page. The vids are stored off site on youtube and embedded here. Now let's suppose some guy with more money than brains offered to purchase the We Don't Sew" series from me for a small fortune that I could not turn down. Who owns the content that gets posted here? Is it mine... even though I brand it with the HF logo? Is it "yours" because of the logo and the embedded placement here? I believe I own the content rights for the placement on youtube. But now you've got my head spinning.

    Serious topics make me regress a bit I guess.

    Attroll is pretty good about giving permission, I think the goal here is just to make him aware of what he is giving permission for, not trying to restrict it.
    I'm completely amazed that HF has been as generous with the logo as it has been. This is probably a long overdue post and I completely support it.
