I will be very interested to see if this gets registered, because as far as I’m concerned, this is very generic, and is a part of all sorts of logos already (Deep River Rock comes to mind straight away, as do many more)Blue Circle Madmax… Yeah, it’s registered for beerMadMax Beer
A very odd logo for Moschino….moschino fashion kills 1 And the Spartan Race seeks protection for it’s logo. It. Looks. ToughSpartan Race
