UEFA Champions League- A Striking Registration

The European soccer season has officially started and the first UEFA Champions League matches have already been played. Ever prominent in these matches is the UEFA logo, a soccer ball shaped by stars.  

Over the years it has become a very strong symbol and UEFA has decided to register it as a trademark in order to prevent other from using it to their own benefit. The trademark has been registered for many goods to avoid ambush maketing.
