Does anyone know whether Sky Sport Deutschland also gets the new logos?

Nothing yet

But when it will, we can expect a reorganisation into genres similar to the British and Italian ones

Today I have spotted one of the reporters of SkySportNewsHD using a microphone with the new sky sport logo on it ! So it seems it is also not far away for Sky Deutschland.

I have spotted a different Sky Formula 1 logo on an offer, and I can't find it again . . . I am hunting . . .

EDIT: Here it is . . . it is much better than the current one . . .

That’s not a logo. That’s just the font they use on that channel - just like the Football and PL cards above it. Each channel has their own variant.

OK. I thought perhaps they had relented on that awful logo Crying or Very sad

But Sky didn't register it as a trademark? It's not their name to register. I can't see them using this without permission.

The text "Formula 1" is the trademark - https://trademarks.ipo.gov.uk/ipo-tmcase/page/Results/4/EU000770479 - it doesn't have to be in a specific font.

How is that possible? Seems unusual. I have read it, but very odd.


Because FOM trademarked those words in that order, plus the old flying F1 logo, to protect the rights to the name and logo of that code of the sport.

In the same way McDonald's have trademarked the name 'McDonalds' the golden arches M logo, names of burgers on the menu, and will even go after independently owned burger shops with similar sounding names (Macdonals, for example)

Try starting a company to do with cars and call it 'Formula1' or 'F1' and see how long it is before you get a strongly worded legal letter forcing you to change it from the lawyers acting on behalf of Liberty Media.

You do see occasional examples of people trying it on. But they don't last long.

My favorite was the 'F1 car repair centre' workshop in Stechford just outside Birmingham. Clearly visible from the train hrading towards Birmingham, they even used a dodgy knock-off of the old F1 logo on the sign on the front. Lasted all of 3 months, one day changed the name, since closed down.
My user name might look like Hatton Cross, but it's pronounced Throatwobbler Mangrove.
