This is my first post so please forgive me if this has been answered and I have overlooked it in the previous posts.

On the banners I have seen advertising the EG comic book and on the back of Ender In Exile. I have been seeing these Actual Ender's Game logos?

How long have these been in use? Is this to discourage piracy? If so, how do I know if I have unknowingly purchased and NOT Actual Ender's Game product?

Thanks in advance!

I think it is more to prevent fan fiction than to prevent piracy. It is also so you know that Orson Scott Card had his hand in the project. I could be wrong that's just what I always thought. I think that the logo first found its home on IGMS.

You'd think that OSC's name plastered across the covers would be enough. [Dont Know]

It seems to me like he's trying to turn Ender's Game into more of a household name, perhaps to help get the movie off the ground? The "Actual Ender's Game" thing seems like a brand logo.

Ok - I feel like an idiot. I haven't noticed this. What should I be looking for?

Hmm, I see it now, but I'd totally not even noticed it before.
