# Aren't the servers hosted in the States? Is that not a defence?
If not, let's not have LOCOG sue B3ta, I quite like it here.

# Hmm. Point taken
LOCOG, if you're reading this, we all think you're wonderfully good eggs, and I would further point out that the picture above which may have you concerned clearly only superficially resembles the O******s logo. I would also point to precedent in the case of Samsung vs Apple, in which it was ruled that Samsung haven't violated Apple's patents because their 'tablet' computer is "less cool" than Apple's, and argue that since the aforementioned picture is significantly cooler than your logo, no transgressions have taken place.

# That seems to be happening unofficially this week anyway.
One reason why topical compos can be a bit boring, because the subject has normally been done to death by the time the Image Challenge Vote comes up.
