BALTIMORE (AP) — A federal judge will allow the Baltimore Ravens to use depictions of the team’s original logo designed by an amateur artist in game and highlight films.

However, U.S. District Judge Marvin Garbis on Wednesday ordered the two sides to try to agree on compensation for artist Frederick Bouchat, who was never paid for the use of the “Flying B” logo.

Last year, a federal appeals court ruled the commercial use of game and highlight films from the Ravens’ first three seasons violates Bouchat’s copyright and sent the case back to Garbis to rule on an injunction.

Bouchat’s drawing of a winged shield bearing the letter B was the model for the Ravens’ original logo. In 1998, a jury ruled that the Ravens stole the idea, but didn’t award damages.
