My council exercises the same requirement and rightfully so. BSA patches are
made and used under the approval of the BSA - tacitly or expressly and any
patch company that expects to bill the council had better know this. The
better companies that I use expect a PO # on council stationary. I have no
problem getting designs approved because I exercise a little discretion when
getting the youths to submit designs. In my earlier days I unknowingly
submitted a design incorporating a "Ren and Stempy" logo. The call from the
patch company was fast - did I have permission from the owners? If not, they
would not touch it. Nobody would sue the scouts (then, not now) but the patch
co has deep pockets.
