Is it allowed to use logos of sports leagues in articles not actually specific about the sport league that the logo/logos depict? I don't think that using these logos qualify for frair use. --Krm500 08:31, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Not if they're copyrighted, no. Are they? Ravenswing 13:57, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
Probably, they are all logos of corporations so why wouldn't they be? --Krm500 08:02, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
I just took the logos out of Wikipedia articles, and it was said it was fair use. I changed nothing. The Evil Clown 15:20, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
Because they aren't necessarily corporate logos, and because copyright law in other countries is not necessarily the same as in the United States. As far as them being fair use, it is fair use to use a logo in an article about that organization/team. It is not fair use to use it anywhere else. So, for instance, the Boston Bruins' logo is fair use in an article specifically about the Boston Bruins, but not in an article about Wayne Cashman, however much he played his entire NHL career for the Bruins.

First pro league[edit]

Canada did not have the first pro league. The International Professional Hockey League was based out of Michigan, and it was the first to pay its players. Surpising to see that there isn't even a category for the US in this article. Kaiser matias 04:40, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
