Phew! -Had to be careful I didnae infringe any copyrights there!
Like most households in the UK I wasnae surprised to receive this leaflet earlier in the week, wherein Royal Mail dress up their latest price increases as some kind of “modernisation” of the mail handling system. What I did find somewhat more startling tho’ was when I saw that, according to the small print on the back of the leaflet, the Royal Mail have apparently registered “The Colour Red” as a trademark.
The sneaky bastards! - I mean you could maybe see a case for them trademarking the colour “Pillarbox Red” [even tho’ that would mean I’d have to start buying a different colour hair dye!] - but taking out a copyright on what amounts to about a third of the entire colour spectrum is downright greedy, if you ask me
