So I want to make a logo for my clan in Assassin's Creed and use that logo in the intro for YouTube videos. When posting, you always need to be careful about copyright materials, so I was wondering if the Assassin insignia is public domain. I have already checked the copyright and trademark office and, while the games, scripts, music, and merchandise are mentioned, there is no mention of the insignia. I found the following link on the wiki that leads me to believe that it is public domain, but I want to be sure. Can anyone give me a definitive answer? Here is the link: http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/File:AssassinLogo.png

The symbol is copyrighted, it's Ubisoft's trademark they hold the rights and can't be used by another person/company without permission from Ubisoft first. That's if you're going to make profit from the insignia, however if you just want to use it for fan art, just make sure that you state that the Insignia symbol's origin.

Ubisoft made the logo available for fans to use in their fankit last year. As long as you don't use it as a for-profit thing, it should be absolutely fine.

As long as you don't plan on using our logo for commercial purposes (you aren't selling anything for profit), then yes, you can use the logo for your video intro.

Hope that helps.

Thank you for the information. We are only planning on posting competitive game-play, montage videos, walkthroughs, etc.. The insignia would be part of a custom design for a clan logo and not sold on any products.

Due to you potentially making money - even though not directly, you are still using the logo to advertise..


I would contact your local Ubisoft PR department and double check before using it.

Being that you'd be representing your services via this trademark that would probably be considered using it for profit. I would clear it with them first. Write to the nearest Ubisoft office for clarification.
