Are the social media icon graphics free from copyright infringement?

  • Hello - I recently used several of the hand-drawn black and white social media icons that are part of the Video Scribe graphics collection in a view at work. Someone asked me, from a copyright perspective are we okay to use those?

    Are there any legal risks to using these drawn cartoon versions of social media apps like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and so on?

  • You may want to consult those websites for their individual policies.

    for example: facebook brand guidelines

    includes these lines (but please read the whole guide for proper context):


    -Use the version of the logo that comes with a blue box on white or light colored backgrounds

    -Use the version of the logo that comes on a white box on blue or dark colored backgrounds


    -Modify the ‘f’ logo in any way, such as by changing the design or color."
