Just remember, there are companies who are very jealous of their logos. People have gotten into some trouble for doing things like that.

satire/ parody of a trademark falls under fair use. Or SNL and every t-shirt company selling to college students would be under fire!

She can build a swale, train a horse, put in a sump pump, herd her sheep with Gibson and do graphic design, etc. The Amazing Jenna strikes again!
I'd buy one of those parody mugs.

Cute! I saw something you would like today, I got passed by a truck full of hay (I had to pull over to let it pass) followed by a little 4-wheel type thing and finally a beat up old flatbed pick-up driven by an older farmer who waived and had a border collie in the cab and another laying on/in the bed. I think I've seen him before with a few more too.

I've seen it happen. But you know best, of course.

I hope the mugs are a big seller for you.

CEO? Why so many negative comments?

Jenna, don't sell yourself short. A lot of us wouldn't even attempt some of the things you do, for fear of failure. You go ahead and do it, and most of the time it turns out pretty darn well!

Jenna,

If you make mugs, I will most certainly buy some!

Grace and Peace,

John

I'm not sure you would want me for a lOgo, might take up to 3-4 months to finish right now, between work and the farm I only have lunchbreaks to work on it. Others have been upset by the wait, and I don't want to upset anyone else.

Jenna- I agree with CEO, and no malice on my part! It is so similar to john deere, and they have lots of $$ and lots of attorneys to protect their interests. That said, you may be okay, I just don't want to see you in legal trouble. Perhaps if you changed the background color, or a tweak like that..........

Love the redesign but I agree you should think twice about using it commercially - i.e. selling mugs, tees, etc.. It's clearly derived from the John Deere logo, and as Kelpie said, they've got waaaaay more lawyers and money than you. The standard for copyright infringement is whether a jury could clearly determine the source - how close is it? There's no "safe" percentage of change to the source that would protect against infringement. As for SNL using recognizable logos in their send-ups, it's entirely possible they paid a licensing fee for doing so. Deere has a big "fan" base already, they have a website where you can buy John Deer merchandise, so personally, I'd be very cautious about messing with them. JMO.

I'll just ask John Deere!

Jenna, that is exactly what I did when I wanted to you use an Eric Carle motif on a quilt. I wrote his museum and they wrote back with quite clear instructions as to what I could do. And they were nice, too. BTW - super neat logo!
