Subject: permission to use Ron Paul Revolution logo for my new book
I would like permission to use your Ron Paul R3volution logo as part of my
book's cover. I have just released my book and it didn't occur to me to get
permission for the logo and was reminded by someone posting about it at
You can find the
I would gladly send you a copy and I am well aware of the fact that I should
have been more careful and I am in violation of your copyright.
Thanks for your consideration,

the email. As you can imagine I get many similar requests for many different private
and commercial products and publications.
This is my
standard response,… the idea/logo belongs to everyone and to no one. I was very
certain about what was gong to happen (long story why) and made the decision
before the first sign was made to promote the concept without any restrictions
(it’s a freedom thing).
The best way to
slow down, or even kill, a volunteer movement we were preparing for is to try
and control it. By demonstrating how much fun could be had by not seeking
permission to communicate directly with a liberty starved populace in a
creative, clear and inspiring way, we provided an outlet for expression. And
once it started, there was nothing that could stop it.
So please feel
free to do what you wish with this logo. It belongs to you as much as it does
I trust the
people to evaluate anything that tries to associate itself with the spirit of
the r3VOLution to be worthy of the label.
