Heat emblem with hair dryer, or park vehicle in sun on warm day - then use waxed dental floss which won't scratch paint put between logo and paint saw back and forth emblem comes right off.

I did the dental floss trick and it worked OK. You really have to be patient and take your time. Make sure to pull up and not across or it will leave rub marks in the clear coat. To remove the remaining "goop" I used a plastic scraper and my fingers, rolling the stuff up like rubber. I also use warm water as a lubricant with the scrapper. I did not use any solvent as I was concerned what it would do to the paint.

Again patience will be needed and rushing will only end up damaging the paint. Also as other have said, a hot day in the sun doesn't hurt either.

On a related note, I wish I knew were to buy that red adhesive, it really sticks !
