Indeed, unfortunately though when Fifa are involved common sense is not something that tends to be part of their thought process.

Try putting the Olympic logo on something, or even Ferrari. Everything you said in the previous post is dead-on. This is copyright/trademark 101 stuff.

FIFA didn't ask Jarno to remove this back in 2006 after Italy won the World Cup.

Maybe Trulli paid the licence fee.  I can see why Rosberg would not want to do that, just to celebrate the success of a country in which he has not lived since he was on the tit and to which he has not contributed one red cent in tax.

Given Mercedes Benz sponsor the German national team they would have paid any licence fee for him if it were required. Trulli didn't pay anything. It's just clear FIFA are as consistent as the FIA with their rules and regulations is all.

Or maybe they didn't know? Or maybe the rules were different 8 years ago? Maybe Trulli asked permission first?

Maybe the powers that be at FIFA had hired a poor tailor and their pockets weren't deep enough to fit anymore money in 2006.....  

 

New design looks better anyway

Yeah yeah, copyright lawyers at it again. It's just a bloody picture of a trophy  :drunk: I can't and probably won't ever understand this kind of stuff.

It's just a trophy, but it's an incredibly powerful image. If they let one person use it without permission, a lot of companies/brands will think it's free to use it in their advertising. The problem with this is that the World Cup's sponsors have paid an absolute ton of money to be associated with it, and if everyone can use it anyway then it's pointless wasting the money. They have to be strict for a reason and at the end of the day they own the image.

 

That's not to say I don't think they should have let Nico use it, but that's the reason why they can't just let anyone freely use it without asking.

You'd think there would be a distinction between using it for commercial purposes and celebrating its existence

Nico is obviously very happy with his new design - I like the fact he took it along to the drivers press conference on Thursday  :lol:  :up:  (all pictures from here: http://www.auto-moto...rn-8480624.html )

Nico-Rosberg-Mercedes-Formel-1-GP-Deutsc

The German drivers have made an effort for their home race with Sebastian and Nico going for German colours and celebrating the world cup win whilst Adrian choose... well, not sure where his inspiration came from, maybe someone else knows (my lack of German knowledge is not helpful in these situations):

Adrian-Sutil-Helm-Formel-1-GP-Deutschlan

The blue and white check is, I think, Bavarian or something?? Is that the region he's from?

:up:  You are correct - that is the coat of arms for Bavaria on the back of the helmet (which also contains the check) - and the flag is the same blue. Sutil is from Starnberg, which is in Bavaria (I love wikipedia  :cool: )

Actually sutil's helmet looks quite neat. They even tried to make it fitting to a different art period (don't know which one, not an expert).

How would we define this in legal terms?

 

At what point do random German companies(Lufthansa*) go from featuring Rosberg in a congratulatory ad, to using him in a way that implies a personal endorsement he hasn't signed up to? Is it the second ad? The 20th?

 

 

*Lufthansa, not a FIFA partner which Emirates is, ran a World Cup win ad which I think survived. At minimum the first showing. Because they used a very basic drawing of the cup. Though they're a partner of the German team so who knows what domestic license they have.
