Feathers ruffled

I doubt any city would welcome the appropriation of its emblem by a commercial company, but when that emblem is as iconic as the Liver bird, and the city happens to be Liverpool (the people of Liverpool are... different), I really don't see it ending well.

It seems the football club is actually trying to register its specific rendition of the emblem (as a trademark – let's not confuse this with a copyright issue), rather than every graphical represention of the bird, but I'm not sure whether that'd be workable. Maybe if it's only in conjunction with the club's name or initials.
