Derby #38: The Year You Were Born

1985 Coke Can PWN!

Coca-Cola has the shape of their bottle copyrighted. And that shade of red. I'm not kidding.

Rejected because: Coca-Cola has the shape of their bottle copyrighted. And that shade of red. I'm not kidding.

In 1985, the Coca Cola company tried to reinvent itself, creatively calling their newer, sweeter product "New Coke." Consumers hated it, and in two months old school Coca Cola Classic ruled the shelves once again...

You can copyright a frequency in the visible portion of the light wave spectrum?

maybe just on a can? That is pretty odd to me.

What's odder is that coke has copyrighted a colour, but apparently not that big iconic "C", as proved by Consumerism. Or did woot get slapped by their lawyers and that led to this?

*giggles*, thanks. Who knew that a bottle shape and color could be copyrighted? If only I had dragged the pen tool handles out a liiiiiiiiitle further when I was creating that bottle... *sigh*

That's ridiculous. So hypothetically, could someone copyright every color?

perhaps the copyright only extends to that red on that kind of bottle or can?
