I'm working on my first freelance project and I have question regarding a copyright issue.
In a sample website design I showed to my client, there is a list of his past clients with their logos on it (I got the logo from Google image search). I told him that if he want to use their logos, he should ask for their permission and files. But now he asked me to use those logos on the actual live website. When I asked if he got the permission, he said just leave it to him.
- Who actually should ask for permission & files, me or the client?
- If I use those logos, can I protect myself by laying a clause in the completion invoice (since the contract is signed already before the project started) that the client will hold any responsibilities in regards to the logos' copyright?
