XXX Games Logo Police

June 12, 2007

Depressing reading the 2012 rules and regulations about the use of the Olympic Logo and the words “Olympic” and “London 2012”. Interesting that they even have rules about use on websites and blogs. For example they say: “DON’T use the London 2012 logo as an icon to link to”

2012 logo

Isn’t it about time that the Olympic rings and other logos were put into the public domain? There are lots of really good “Open Source brands” – Irish Pubs, national flags and some City Names are all good examples of successful open source branding.

And… oooh- err-missus: I just noticed that the 2012 Olympics is also the “XXX Olympiad”… wonder if that is going to cause any problems with the “adult” entertainment industry!
