IPA Emblems

IPA emblem

There are three versions of the emblem (logo): a crest and a roundel. They may only be reproduced in the correct copyright colours, except where they are reproduced in a single colour, which may be any colour, and nothing shall impinge upon or pass through them. Each Section has been supplied with the authorised colour codes and particulars may be obtained from the Secretary General.

The emblems (or logos) of the International Police Association are protected by international copyright under the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works, 1886, are revised by several Conventions: Berlin (1908), Berne (1914), Rome (1928), Brussells (1948), Stockholm (1967) and the Paris Convention of 1971. This Convention was signed by 117 States, including Ireland, as parties to this Convention on January 11, 1996. The original Berne document is entitled International Protection of Copyright and Neighbouring Rights.

The copyright protection means that certain user of the work is lawful only with the authorisation of the owner of the copyright. As the Founder, Arthur Troop, designed the logos, he was deemed to be the owner of the copyright. The Founder has transferred his rights to teh PEB and IPA Sections. The PEB has authorised their use by Regions and Branches of the Association. This authorisation permits the use of the emblems on publications, letter headings, badges, plaques and other items sold by or presented on behalf of the International Police Association (IPA). The original letter of the Founder effecting the transfer and user is filed in the archives at the International Administrative Centre (IAC) in Nottingham.

The PEB advises Sections to register the copyright in their own country (Section) so that infringements may be dealt with in accordance with the law in that country. All reproductions of the emblems must bear the copyright sign: ? by IPA 1974'.
