"Squawk! I'm a nonprofit toucan."
I read a Los Angeles Times news story which said that a nonprofit's logo was thought to be deceptive:
Kellogg’s feathers are ruffled over a case of too many toucans.
The cereal giant has asked a Bay Area Mayan nonprofit organization to remove an image of the tropical bird in its logo, claiming that it could be confused with Kellogg’s trademarked Froot Loops mascot, Toucan Sam.Then I find this story, written three months later, which seems to prove that it's better to cooperate rather than have a bird fight:
The San Ramon-based Maya Archaeology Initiative said its toucan looks nothing like Kellogg’s cartoon and that the two birds aren’t in competition...
In a joint statement Kellogg Company and the Maya Archaeology Initiative (MAI) announced today that Kellogg is making a $100,000 contribution to help launch one of the MAI’s priority projects to improve the lives of the Maya people in a region rich in cultural heritage but lacking in access to education and economic opportunities.A less commercial toucan gives an opinion:
A real toucan squawks
- Mayan group's logo too much like Toucan Sam, Kellogg's squawks, Los Angeles Times>>
- Maya Archaeology Initiative>>
