The Maryland Republican Party admitted Wednesday that it used a trademarked logo of the Baltimore Ravens to raise funds without seeking the team's permission. The party's executive director said it had been an error on his part. The unauthorized use of the purple-and-black logo and Ravens shield came as the party publicized a fundraiser at a private home in Edgewater. In emails, on Facebook and on the party Web page, the state GOP used the logo to invite people to "an afternoon of Ravens football and Republican Party politics" during Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

Get out your crayons and color me stupid, but as I sit here wondering what great mind decided that the Columbia Association logo must change because it can't be scaled down for the latest social media apps, I have to think "What would Jim Rouse do?" As early settlers, the People Tree had and still does have such significance to those of us who moved from major metropolitan areas — in our case, Chicago — where inequality among peoples was rampant. One could sit at the lakefront and look up at the People Tree and imagine the makeup of those 66 figures.

You can't miss Todd Brizzi's artistic stamp on Harford Road in Lauraville/Hamilton. He'd just never tell you that.

Or that the company's peculiar-cool coffee-bean-in-a-crab design, its answer to the "siren" logo of a certain company that must not be named, is his as well. That "Fueled by Zeke's" bumper sticker on the Honda Accord driving by? That’s Brizzi, too. He has created the instantly memorable logos for many of the shops on this block -- the barber store Chop Shop, the knitting supply store Spinster, Great Soul Wellness Studio.

A federal appeals court upheld a decision Tuesday that the NFL and Ravens could use their former "Flying B" logo to depict the team's history, lyrically defending the concept of fair use in copyright law in the process. The logo, which features a winged gold shield with the letter B on it, is the subject of numerous lawsuits filed by Frederick E. Bouchat, who has been credited in court as its original designer. But Bouchat has had less luck turning his legal victories into payouts and has continued to sue. In the latest case he argued that the NFL and Ravens infringed his copyright in historical videos and an exhibit at the M&T Bank Stadium.
