I want to create a large business directory website , which would allow a user (buyer) to search, filter and identify suitable products.
I would require company logos and use of product names (TM,CopyRight) for my website to look professional.
As an example… If my business directory (website) was considering the Food & Drink Industry
- Level 0 - Category - Soft Drinks, Soft Drinks
- Level 1 - Company - Coca Cola Company, PepsiCo
- Level 2 - Product - Fanta Orange, Pepsi Max
- Level 3 - AdditionalInfo - High Sugar, Zero Sugar
If my user filtered the directory and chose Fanta Orange. There would be a link which would take the user to that site.
My Question... Do I require permission to use companies logos and titles? Some of these companies are large global organisations and contacting the right person may prove difficult. On another note… Is there a similar way to operate this like GlassDoor does?
