where's that cardigan thread?
he can't be making much money
you might owe these guys some money
It'll be fucking dull though.
He'd owe Orange money if he was infringing their trademark (or under passing off laws, which I'll come to in a bit). It doesn't use the whole orange logo so that's out. Orange might have registered a trademark for a particular shade of orange, though but if they have it will only be for a very narrow range of goods and services i.e. if they were permitted to register it all it wouldn't in all likelihood cover CDs and stuff. (you can't just register a trademark for EVERYTHING; you have to specify what it's to be used for. Although this can be many things and there are other complicated rules to do with brand association and dilution of a mark and stuff)
The passing off thing would mean that a judge would have to think that the average consumer would look at the album cover and think "I reckon that's got something to do with the mobile phone company Orange", which they wouldn't, because that's dumb. So he'll be fine on that front too.
maybe he means the euro channel
sc2 players do that all the time
