Does anyone with authority know if warmblood breed brand symbols for any of the warmblood breed registries OTHER than OLD/NA are copyrighted?
I have been trying to find this information, but none of the registry websites I have looked at seem to have the information regarding copyrights except as it relates to articles published on their sites. I have looked at German Oldenburg Verband, Trakehner Verband, KWPN and Holsteiner Verband.
I am interested in having some items made with some of the (primarily European registry) brand symbols on it and I do not wish to get into any legal trouble regarding copyright infringement.
Do you know where I can find that information in writing? We have done a web search on the international copyright registry information sites and do not get any hits other than for some of the breed registries in the USA, but most of them (other then OLD/NA) are expired or for other reasons are no longer shown as being valid.
I don't know about copyrights or trademarks, but you can buy saddle pads and jewelry and sew on emblems and probably other things from most of the tack shops as well as all of the registries - all aready embroidered.
