Maybe someone should call him and see if he wants to make a few bucks.

I'm not sure how much the oval shape is their intellectual property either.
Its just a matter of time.
Eddie at West Coast Rover got hassled.

RN will not have issues as they are tied in with Rover itself.

The rest of us will get the same letter someday.

I know that a number of shops/parts houses had the same issue a few years back with Ford/Mustang. I am sure that other brands/models have had the same issue too. In the case of the Mustang it was the same deal with copyright infringement of either the term "Mustang" or the use of the blue oval and/or running horse. A lot of the "bigger" shops were able to get by with a disclaimer that they were not affiliated with Ford while some of the smaller guys changed their names...probably for ease rather than justice.

I am not lawyer nor claim to even remotely understand the legal system but it is disappointing that a brand would attack individuals and/or businesses that are actually working to sustain and promote the brand while offering no competition to the brand itself! Best of luck Doug and let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Oh how I love logo design disputes! Technically all you would have to do it not use Futura or the font they use for Land Rover in the green oval you could use something like Gotham and make the logo brown, takes those little hyphens out and call it a day. Nobody owns a shape and I could write you up all the examples of how your logo and brand is different than their logo and brand.

Why not write them back and tell them to go after Ford, KIA and Hyundai too for using the oval and italic font, not to mention some others

Ron,

let me help you

Dear Land Rover,

Allow me to start by telling you Sod Off.
I have changed the background to white and and reworked my logo

As far as removing the word rover from my domain it is not for you to say as it is a legal corporation in the state of maryland, HOWEVER in an effort to assist you with your quest, said domain it is available for sale in the amount of $ 500,000.00.

Please include a check in said amount for me to cease the operation as it stands

Regards,

Mr. I couldntcareless of your BS

Tell them that use of the Land Rover name on some of the new Land Rover vehicle designs is causing more confusion throughout our community than Dividing Creek's use of the name Rover.

Here's my submission.

I'm thinking that approach might not work for this scenario.

The top part of the V forms a steering skid plate.

Fedex uses the positive and negative form of an arrow in their design. I was kind of playing around with that thought a little but in the end it just helps define the v and is a nice graphical element.

The "V" can be your company icon if you see fit
Maybe it can be used for promotional, advertising and brand building.
