Using the Red Bull logo
Using the Red Bull logotype is probably not a good idea. Mojo emailed Red Bull about using the logo in February 2011, see , posted Sun Feb 27, 2011. Large portions of his email and Red Bull's answer are cited below.
|Hi There, This may be a very random question but is it regarding the use of the Red Bull logo for a free open source project that I am involved in. The open source project is a free Flight Simulator called FlightGear http://www.flightgear.org/ everything that is created for this simulator (scenery/terrain/aircraft) is done by volunteers in their own time. We have several aircraft that Red Bull uses in its "Flying Bulls" display team and we would like to recreate the liveries that these aircraft use including the use of the logo but there is some debate about whether we can use it or not. Our aim is not to tarnish the reputation of Red Bull but in a way we could help promote it by having it on our aircraft models. We will not be profiting from using the logo as FlightGear is free to everyone who wants to download it and so are the add-ons. Day by day this simulator is getting better by the work the volunteers do on it and we hope to make it even better with the use of your logo. Many thanks and I am willing to answer any questions that you have.
In summary the Red Bull logotype and probably their trademark as well (in essence the name Red Bull) can not possibly be used in FlightGear, due to legal reasons. At least this addon is not a part of the official distribution. What about Green Dragon instead. ;-)
