View Full Version : Branding Question

I am working on some images for a CD cover and have a question about branding. The artist would like to have an image of the piano on the cover, and it is a Yamaha piano. Are there any issues with producing a CD cover that shows the brand name of an instrument? I wouldn't think this would be a problem given that practically any rock band would be impossible to photograph without having brand names in the image since drums, keyboards, amps, etc. have their brand in huge letters that is hard to work around.

To be on the safe side is there anyway you could clone out the brand name or even blur just enough to make unreadable?. You never know how a corporation will react, on the one hand they pay big bucks to get just a second of view time in a movie or TV show, yet will come after someone who is inadvertantly giving them a free ad. go figure.
