I'm sure the worst they will do is send a cease and desist. Personally, I don't care if the icon is up there or not.

While you are at it, I suggest you contact MDA about this...

This is the bigger outrage, in my opinion.

Are you talking about the red circle with the blue strip through the middle?

I doubt anyone would care... I think that's more like a stop sign than a trademark.

The OP needs to go find something useful to do, like beat a good video game or something.

Is it? I've never been to Europe. I thought that symbol was a "Universal" subway sign that could be found throughout Europe...

If Cary was selling a service it might be an issue. He is not attempting to profit from the use of the symbol.

Someone's actually thinking about traversing the intricacies of international law over the Fairfax Underground logo?

Then the FU symbol is meant to be parody or satire of LU, and therefor allowable under the Free Use laws.

Ok, then... That's good to know.

I still don't think TfL is going to give a shit about its use on this site, though.

The mentioned logo is actually the international
logo for CMS (Chronic Masturbation Syndrome) although a class action
suit may be worth considering on behalf of the mentally handicapped
suffering from the aforementioned condition.

Doesn't look much like a logo to me. It looks like Fairfax underground typed in a generic digital font. I hope cary didn't pay some consultant for that.

A letter would be the worst this site could get. They would have to prove damages.

A site with pictures of cats with lasers shooting out of their eyes, people complaining about window tinting laws and illegal aliens, and where a lady named Alias goes to pick up future partners could not be confused with the transit system of a city 1000s of miles away.

We, the people of the underground, want to thank you for your email. We passed it around the office and everybody was laughing hysterically.

Thanks for the laugh.

Actually, the London Underground is exactly like that. Except Alias is a cross-dresser who goes by the name Cocksuela.
