Hello I am new to this forum and hope some one can help me.
I have designed and built a new tool and that tool is in the shape of a
companys logo and I would like to submit it to that company... But before I do I would like have some kind of protection and I know that
most companys wont sign a discloser aggreement. What I am wondering is can I do a design patent on the tool itself without infringing on the logo trademark? I am only interested in marketing it to the company that
has the logo so I wont be selling it to anybody else. I appreciate any
help or info on this subject.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
