I'm creating a social media portal page for the Emory website, but several folks are concerned about using the logos of the various social media companies (YouTube, FB, Twitter, Delicious, etc). They are brining up copyright concerns, wondering if we might have to go to each and ask for permission to use/alter their logo into a set of uniform icons.
The options are to:
1. Use a set of existing social media icons to help create a unified look to the page, however the it is not known if the companies have given permission for their logos to be altered
2. Create our own set of icons, but would we have to get permission from each to alter them?
3. Use the standard logos for each site in an unaltered form
How have you all handled the addition of social media icons to your university web pages? I've seen it everywhere, from Texas A&M to WVa to UVA to Cornell. Any copyright concerns come up?
