: Is it illegal to use major league logos or images on a website? If it is, is there a way around this; for instance, stating on the site that the images are copywrited by the NFL. I appreciate any information you could give. Thanks
You have asked a good question, the answer to which is not completely clear. The facts have to be considered in terms of the law. The law is moving so fast with the internet that there may be questions including antidilution.
The law itself, unfortunately is not a matter of simple English. "Illegal", what does that mean? I think of a crime first. Crime, usually depends on intent.
I feel almost embarassed in that I don't see any black and white answer and I don't feel like researching the new antidillution statute just to answer the question.
