IOC opposes bid to patent 4-ring Olympic logo
Question of the Day
LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - The IOC will oppose a reported bid by a Russian businessman to trademark the four-ring Olympic symbol displayed at the opening ceremony of the Sochi Games.
Dmitry Medvedev, the owner of a company that builds luxury country homes, has told the Russian RBC news outlet that he filed a patent application for the defective logo.
Sochi’s opening ceremony experienced a glitch when one of the five Olympic rings - represented by snowflakes - failed to open.
Medvedev, who has no relation to the Russian prime minister of the same name, says his company has used the image in its ads. He says he filed the trademark application to the state patent agency in Moscow to fend off any complaints from the IOC.
The International Olympic Committee says it “is aware of this matter and is opposed to the trademark application because of its similarity with the Olympic Symbol.”
