Report: City wants trademark rights for police, fire logos
July 5, 2006 (WLS) -- The City of Chicago wants trademark rights to some very familiar symbols in the city.
According to Crain's Chicago Business, the city has filed trademark applications for the official logo of the Chicago police and fire departments. They even want the rights to the sky blue paint job you see on city garbage trucks.
In May, Chicago was granted trademark rights for the Chicago Airport System logo.
New York made a similar move after 9/11 when people spent millions for NYPD and FDNY hats and t-shirts.
