Rockwell name query... copyright/license
0

Can the word rockwell be used as a name of a new space in conjunction with the use of the font?

I am setting up a new building that provides rented studio space to small creative businesses in London. We decided we wanted to call it Rockwell House. We've have used the Rockwell font for the logo and website.

Is there an issue with us using this? What are the parameters we should be aware of? Please can someone give me some advice on using this.

Thanks

I doubt there would be a problem legally, but type nerds might make fun of it. (See this Flickr set.)

There could be an issue if the trademark holder (if someone exists) is in the same field and region of business like you are. btw. Takeing the fonts name for your business is ... - There are some special flickr and/or facebook groups around - for such kind of creativity, maybe you will join them.

If you can't rockwell, you can always rockmore.

thanks for the advice, duly noted, from our point of view we liked the look of the font, but i'm fairly sure if it proves to be an issue we can rebrand with a different font.

You could use Memphis just to confuse people. :)
