Poor Big Tobacco. That nasty old government is trying to control their trademarks in an effort to stop them from killing more and more of us, and making billions in the process. How do they stand it? With a lawsuit, that’s how. Like I couldn’t hate tobacco companies more.
There’s currently no word on how the lawsuit went, but in the meantime, you can listen to this episode of Talk the Talk, in which I talk to Joe Cassidy about logos, logo evolution, and the ownership of symbols.
And this is the last episode with Joe! He’s moving out of Perth to work on editing a regional weekly newspaper. We on the Talk wish him all the best, and we fear for the future. Of course, we’re in good hands with Stacey Gougoulis for the next few weeks, and he’s always a lot of fun.
