Marlys Gallager made this amazing artwork for Nancy Vickers of NV Cockers over 10 years ago and it was done in ink.
The major detail and foundation all came from the original designer, not the next two designers as they were reproductions!
Click for Marlys release of copyright statement and Marlys asking cease and desist using it or claiming rights to it to make sure I had my ducks in a row so to speak I and before I spent more money on recreating this logo on 07/31/2017 I got the original artist to release the copyright that way going forward I would not have any issues.
A 2nd version of the logo was created by Bar Butler.
According to Nancy, Bar was also commissioned thus giving up the copyright logo under state law. It became a big deal as Bar was then selling other colored versions of Nancy’s logo to others to use.
Marlys recently became aware of this whole situation and felt that she should have been contacted when Barbara Butler thought she owned the copyright to it after she basically colored it in. She did NOT own any copyrights to it. Bar labeled it pretty much her work which indeed really it was not at all.
Then a 3rd logo was created for Nancy roughly in March 2013 using the same foundation drawing from Marlys.
In 2013 Nancy had it copyright protected through the US Copyright Registry as she had a similar issue with the last artist.
The 3rd logo reversion was done by Wendy Reyn – Winconline gave it an updated look.
Wendy was commissioned and Nancy owned the copyright to all the artworks created.
Per the screenshot dated March 22nd, 2013 from Wendy Reyn- Winconline -all images and logos are properties of their respective owners, they are not to be used without permission.
On 11-3-2015 Nancy of Nv Cockers gave me permission to use any of the logos, gave me the copyrights to them and told me I can change them any way I see fit at that time I didn’t even know if I was going to build a website or not or start breeding but I wanted to be able to own rights to the logo.
