Well, perhaps there is some truth in scientology advertising after-all.
If there was a fundraising Olympics, they would gold in every event. The Buy Now Sprint. The Marathon. The Hard Sell Hurdles. The Crush Regging Relay. The Credit Card High Jump.
Of course, the people who copyright, trademark and service mark everything, because they don’t want any “unauthorized” use (ie where they don’t collect any money) have no problem using a clear rip-off of the Olympic symbol (the real one has 5 rings, not 7). Can you imagine if someone opened a center and called it Scinetology — they would be claiming this as a violation as it was intended to create confusion in the minds of consumers with the real thing. Just like their sleazy symbol below.
This is a pretty sad commentary on the state of scientology. They feel the need to try to cash in on the Olympics, but are aware that using the Olympics symbol without approval might land them in hot water, so they try to sleaze by using a knock-off symbol that is intended to make it appear it is the real thing.
How utterly unoriginal. Love to hear them explain how this is all according to the Way To Happiness…
