OK, let me get this straight. According to this article on Colour Lovers, T-Mobile owns the colour magenta!? Apparently they have a trademark for the colour’s use within the telecommunication sector, and they will strike you down if your are promoting anything using magenta in their ballpark. That includes anything to do with phones, digital media and anything on the internet.

Take a look at their copyright below:


They already started suing Dutch companies Slam FM and 100% NL that use magenta in their campaigns. Trademarking a 150 year old colour, that’s rather stupid don’t you think?
