    I am building a mobile application in which you see all sorts of images. Can I use logos of companies (is it fair-use), or are there any intellectual property law issues?

    If it matters, my application would be free with in-app purchases.

    Hi Ran
    Have you checked to see if the companies have brand promotion, protection guidelines which may even encourage you to use their logo in promotional materials but only in certain ways?

    No, because I want to use dozens of logos of companies. Checking each company to see how they would allow the use of their logos is too much work...
    I am really hoping that it has the "Fair-Use" protection.
