i wasn't going to say anything about my error and i thought i had 
diffused it well in my reply, but since you ask, no one in their right 
mind would have a logo designed and not have unlimited use rights to 
it.  that's why the prices seem exorbitant sometimes; however, the 
copyright is still the property of the designer.  to own the copyright 
would cost much money, that's why companies usually don't buy the 
copyright; it's an ip thing for the designer as well as a portfolio piece.


sorry, i was under the impression that the email went to the group.  
this reply will make it.
