Not to rain down on anyone's parade, but you cannot use that
DVD logo image. The DVD logo is copyrighted and you need to
pay for usage of it (as far as I know). I also highly doubt it is
legal to slap that FBI warning on a disc.

Usage of the DVD logo for home use falls into the "common usage" laws. If you want to slap it onto a DVD that you are selling, then beware. It costs $10,000, as your disc has to be approved for DVD standards and get the logo. It's much like how JVC owns the VHS logo, but it's reached common usage too. It's also been argued (in court) that by using a DVD recorder and DVD blank discs, both had already poaid for the DVD logo, you "inherit" the right to use the logo since both the burner and disc were already standardized. Again, the decidion fell to "common usage" laws because it was not for some huge profit.


As for the FBI titles - one I typed myself and I hereby grant usage, and the one with the actual FBI logo is completely legal to use.


Does the forecast still call for rain, or can we call the firetrucks and the marching band?

There are no Common Usage Laws, but rather it is a defense that can be applied. In other words you can try to get out of your civil and criminal charges with a common usage defense.

JVC rigorously defends their VHS trademark and the DVD org is ramping up their attacks on counterfeit discs. I suspect most people's productions will fall under their radar and avoid prosecution. But when you release a product, you'll never know who will see.

when a ruling goes in favor of the defense, it becomes LAW.

Everyone likes "free stuff," but you should have the right to give it away. Laws are not created by the successful prosecution or defense of a statute or law. A considerable volume of information has already been written about this subject by intellectual property attorneys that visit the site (a big thanks to Paul Tauger).

This discussion will remain here for now, so that people who visit the site and download the logo etc. are aware of the potential liability.

It might become precedent, but not law.

Precedent is the principle in law of using the past in order to assist in current interpretation and decision-making.

Okay, though I'm more interested in the free stuff, here goes . . .

There's no such thing as a "common usage" law. Copyright infringement is strict liability.

Precedent is law, but . . . a District Court decision is not binding precedent, meaning no other court has to follow it. An appellate court's opinion is binding on the circuit in the court sits. It is not binding on courts in other jurisdictions. If the Supreme Court rules, then it's binding everywhere.

Fair use determinations are always fact specific, so a decision in favor of the defendant can not necessarily be extrapolated to anyone else.

Buying a DVD gives no rights to the DVD logo.

So, with that out of the way, where did the music come from? I'm a royalty-free addict, always desparate for more.
