*Will I get into trouble*

If I use a logo which was designed by someone I'm no longer talking to?

If so, could I alter it slightly then use it?

Well no, it was a 'friend' doing it. I was going to pay, but the whole thing didn't go through.

Then if you have not paid for it, it remains your friends property/copyright.

I'm sure graphic designers on here will give you a quote of a logo :')

Hi Charlene

Even a heavily modified logo could land you in hot water! Don't do it!!!

Send them a Cheque in the post with a little note explaining payment for logo. (Keep it breif)

If they cash the cheque, use the Logo..

If they don't... well...


All the best

Martin

Good Idea, thanks Martin, it's not like my ideas didn't go into it, why should I lose out completely?

well,yes - to a point...but (IMHO) if you commission someone to do work,whether logo design or something else,then it is bad form to renege on that and withhold payment for services rendered....ESPECIALLY if you are going to use the logo (!)

(Personally,I would offer them the money and make clear it is specifically for use of the logo .)
