I'm making a web application that will include links to over 500 games. For every game link I'm planning on including the game's logo. I'm planning to either acquire the logos from the games websites or from Google image searches.
Is it legal for me to use the game logos in my application? Will it be more/less legal if I include a disclaimer somewhere about the ownership of the logos? Maybe there are special rules for most game logos?
My first assumption is yes, of course it's illegal to display somebody else's copyrighted material in my application without explicit permission, but most game related web-pages I've ever visited has graphics of games in them, especially the logos - so I'm confused. Are those sites breaking the law? Could anybody help me clear this up?
(I live in Norway, and the application will be hosted from Norway)
I know this question would be best directed at a lawyer, but as there isn't a law site at stack exchange and this is a question that a lot of programmers probably know the answer to, I'm asking it here. Hope that's cool.
