Thumbnail Feedback Can I use an App logo in a thumbnail of a video reviewing that app?

I am planning on doing reviews of cell phone apps. Would it be a problem to use the logo of the app in my thumbnails, meaning issues with copyrights ?

That should fall under fair use. As long as you’re not trying to represent the app in an official standpoint, you should be totally fine to use it.

i think some companies might try the “copyright” route to prevent you using their logo if it’s a NEGATIVE review... but I don’t know where that would actually sit legally. But for small scale reviews of an app I see no issue using it, and most app developers would appreciate the free advertising.
