T-mobile USA copyrights colour. Hm, that makes me think that i need to hurry and copyright my own magenta till all of them are picked. At least i can use the next pantone colour along, as in the handy demonstration to the right, there, because as we all know, ONE SHADE of magenta along makes all the difference, and will make it totally obvious you’ve not nicked their logo. A quick search of the The British Patent Office (www.patent.gov.uk) and their database of trademarks shows Orange hold the colour orange (pantone 151) as a registered trademark too. I guess in about next 10 years graphic design world will be in need of new colours.
Sorry Barbie & Hello Kitty :-(
