Under what conditions can you copyright a logo
Say I'm doing some work for a client and they pay me for making a logo. Under what conditions can they then copyright this logo. If I take the image of the earth and then incorporate it into a logo, can they still copy right their logo? I look forward to your replies

I would suggest that this is a question for an Intellectual Property (IP), lawyer. However, if they want to copyright something, they should already have spoken to such a person before letting a designer see it unless they ask you to sign an NDA/Confidentiality Undertaking. (Based on my knowledge in UK).

Just a note: You wouldn't want to use a photograph in a logo. It wouldn't translate well across different medias.
Most of my questions/posts are fairly straightforward and simple. I post long verbose messages in an attempt to be thorough.
