    Clues

    The country is located in Europe, and the message this picture stands for is a play on words in the language concerned, which is why this animal was used... :confused: ;) vik,

    Nope... thanks for trying though... My last clues...

    This picture was registered as a trademark by the Armed Forces in the country in question in the early 1980s.

    A museum (the only museum in this country located in a WWII underground bunker) had been using this picture for various products it was selling. The Armed Forces thought they were overstepping the mark, and sued them for damages in 1997.

    The museum's argument was that you cannot trademark a piece of history. It also came to light that the Armed Forces did not have the right to trademark the picture, because the man who drew it had not been employed by them, and therefore when he passed away, his daughters took over the rights to the picture. These rights were in 2002 transferred to the museum, who then counter-sued the Armed Forces for theft (as they had trademarked the picture without permission from the rights holders).

    The Armed Forces and this museum went head to head in court for the first time in 2003, and for the last time last October.

    Will let you know the outcome tomorrow, unless someone figures out the correct answer... bou; vik, bou; box;

    Well, what do you expect? Sweden?? The Swiss military don't exactly jump to mind when you mention WWII. C'mon A-W, how about one that's not quite so obscure?
