Free Magenta – NOW!

Wowww, I never ever thought I would ever see something as ridiculous as this!

It reads like this on Advertblog:

“In The Netherlands, a social movement is born to protect the free use of the magenta colour in communication materials. The fight has begun recently, when mobile carrier T-Mobile has started a legal fight versus a series of Dutch brands such as Slam FM, Compello and 100% NL which magenta in their logo.

Basically T-Mobile claims it owns the rights to use magenta in commercial materials, saying the registered them at the Oami… It’s such a silly thing!”

I am truly speachless… T-Mobile is really getting the big head syndrome!

Luce, watch out! lol :)

  1. i am waiting for the day that T-Mobile will sue anyone who pronounces the word “magenta”!

  2. lol that’s halarious! And sandly, with where things are right now, it would not even be that weird! lol

  3. I hope Orange, Bleu Nuit and so on do not do the same because our life will get monochromatic pretty fast.

    Frankly, I think a company shows its lack any creativity and purpose when it cannot find something more productive to do than suing other brands for the use of a universal color. It is pathetic!

  4. Well said Kim! So so so true!!
