TGIF: Satire Lashes Out At China's Olympic Logo

Thank goodness it's Friday again!

Brand owners are not always pleased with the way other people use/abuse their logo in the name of satire. With the following cartoon I am sure the Chinese government and the Chinese Olympics Committee will not be amused. Hat tip to Jeremy Phillips of the renowned IP Kat that links to Vincent Chow's cartoon on 'How Beijing 2008 got its logo' see here.

In February IP Dragon pleaded for a satire limitation of a trademark right: 'Should trademark law have a sense of humour?', read here. What do you think?
