    Non-trademarked Cyclone logo

    I want to order some golf balls with a Cyclone logo. They won't let me use a trademarked logo so, does anyone have a logo or cool picture I can use that's not trademarked?

    FYI - to get golfballs with any picture you want on them: Photo Golf Balls

    Re: Non-trademarked Cyclone logo

    Also, can someone explain to me the difference between trademark and copyright?

    You could do like those sunglasses they sell on the beach in Mexico and just put "Cyklones" or "Cylones" on them.

    Thanks. That's what I was thinking but the golf ball place said I couldn't use the Cyclone logo because of copyright issues. I guess he meant trademark.

    I was pretty impressed the guy even knew it was the Cyclones logo I was trying to use.

    Re: Non-trademarked Cyclone logo

    If you want golf balls like that why don't you just order them through the bookstore?

    They probably don't have the new logo balls.

    Because the balls you can buy in the stores are crap. I want to put the Cyclone logo on the balls I like to play.

    It was small print ...
    I have a hat misprinted with Cyclohes

    Not to hijack the thread, but "phony" merchandise is really hilarious to me. My brother found a Miami "Heats" jersey and there are other major examples floating around.
