Hi folks. Does anyone know if I'm allowed to include the standard DVD-Video and Dolby-Digital logos on printed labels for DVDs I've created with Encore? Are there any licensing restrictions to using the logos? Also, can I use the standard Region-All logo as well?
No, you are not. Those are licensed logos and you must go through a certification process. One criteria is glass mastering. As a content provider or duplicator you cannot use that logo for burned discs.
If, however, you are sending your final product to a licensed duplicator, you can use it in your label. They pay the $5000 or so license fee to be able to use it and comply with its requirements for manufacturing and duplication.
Now if this is your wedding video and you're not selling or distributing it, go right ahead :-) But if this project is being distributed in any way, leave the logo off. You can make your own DVD Video logo as long as it's not a blatant rip-off of theirs.
