ChrisJBrady Folk events connected with Olympics (6) RE: Folk events connected with Olympics 20 Apr 12


The same silliness was perpetrated a few years ago by the American Sail Training Association (ASTA) which promoted - and still promotes - tall ship events at various American ports. The 'tall ships are coming'(r) was a registered trade mark (probably still in) and even the term 'tall ships'(c) was copyrighted by them. On my website I use the term 'tall ships' in the generic sense 'cos I sailed - and still sail - on them. However I was asked to remove the term 'tall ships' from my web pages. I declined to do so. So if the Olympics want to complain about the use of the copyrighted / registered term 'Olympics' then tough - sue me. CJB.
