    Would this Verizon Wireless ad be considered an infringement of our bowtie logo?

    NO not on that. and whats ups gonna do if it was with all the verizion packages we do and have done , BUT knowing you mr upstate im sure you never deliverd a verizion box because the people on your route never heard of that company . SO since no one in your route area never heard of verizion theres no infringement. ( nextproblem

    I think Cheryl should add both a "dislike" button and a "huh?" button, with the latter being used for Rocketman's posts.

    I think Chevy has a lock on the "bow tie," but it's still clearly a trademark infringement. The resemblance is unmistakable. The letters "U","P", and "S" are prominently displayed in the photo on the phone's qwerty keyboard. Something needs to be done immediately!

    Johney Raise your hand if you think Upstate is a D-Bag

    The two are hardly even close to the same.

    whenever I wear one of my uniforms with an old logo the boss has a fit. I've got uniforms with every logo thats been used since my date of hire.

    I have stuff in my office with the old logo and no one says anything.

    I'm a sentimental person ... I miss my friend.

    The bow is centered in the old UPS logo, it's off to the side on the Verizon ad. Plus the dangling ends of the ribbon are unequal lengths. I could see how it might on first glance appear similar but a wrapped package with a bow is a symbol of the season.

    I think it's the "giggles and glee" thing.
