    My next project... Tiger's chairs.

    One of my FB friends just shared a link with me and it's awesome! It included a picture of a couple adirondack style chairs that someone made, but they're in the shape of a Detroit Tiger's Olde English D.

    I'm going to start working on some plans and I will be making some of these! How cool are these?

    Oh I'm sure I would. I'll have to make a "disabled version" for myself!

    Welcome aboard, Gerald.

    Out of curiosity, how does one patent an artistic design based on a copyrighted logo?

    The Old English "D" is not copyrighted, but the Tigers logo (which is comprised of that "D") is indeed trademarked. With the amount of prior art the Tigers (and MLB) can prove, your design patent will be a challenge, to say the least.

    And patented or not, if a hobbyist wants to make an Adirondack chair with an Old English "D" as the back, there's not a lot stopping them. And quite frankly if one of our members wants to make one, I'll be cheering him on.
