Earlier this month, "Vikings,” History Channel's first full-length, scripted series premiered, arriving on the heels of the massively successful miniseries "Hatfields & McCoys,” starring Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton. To accompany such an insightful and engaging series, King and Country (K&C) designed a logo that captured the spirit of both the civilization and the show: embodying the different facets of “Vikings” in a way that is simple and memorable.
K&C used the letter “V” and elevated it to symbolic status by creating a logo that is bold and iconic at first glance, while also layered with great storytelling detail on closer inspection. The two sides of the letter utilize intricate, yet readable, designs that show the multiple dimensions of the characters.

In it, she points to the fact the head of the United States Copyright Office is thinking it might be high time to update the U.S. Copyright Law which hasn't changed since Gerald Ford was President. (For the uneducated, that would be 1976.)
Think about that for just a second. In 1976 there were no mobile phones, no mp3 players, no tablets, no real home computers except for the rich and geeky. No wifi.No Napster/Limewire/Megaupload/PirateBay. No cd's. No disks. Etc.
