I am posting a graphic design gig for marketing materials (flyers, postcards, brochures, etc…)
I have made logos in the past and am considering offering this as well, however, I want to ensure that my logos do not inadvertently create copyright infringement.
I do design the logos myself - I’ve used various free elements & icons from for example Canva and arranged them myself from my own creativity. I reverse search using Google Images to make sure there aren’t duplicates out there. Is this sufficent?
Does a simple reverse search help from copyright infringment?
There are so many similar free icons out there. Even though I make sure that I add and edit any free elements/icons that I use from Canva, Spark, etc…I understand that if a logo looks very similar even if it’s not exact it can constitute copyright infringement. I just want to make sure that I am covering my bases before offering this as a service as I do not want someone to buy from me and then have a lawsuit on their hands down the line.
If nothing comes up after a reverse search is it safe to say that my logo is safe to send for the buyer to then copyright themselves considering I’m using legal free images, elements and icons?
Any tips are appreciated!!!
