Logo copy­cats?

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen) - - NEWS -

The Premier League is be­lieved to be con­sult­ing lawyers over claims that Ukip’s logo is a “rip-off ” of the em­blem of English foot­ball’s top flight.

A Ukip spokesman in­sisted the de­sign “is not a rip-off ” and stressed that Ukip had checked that it does not in­fringe copy­right.

The logo has sparked a war of words be­tween Gary Lineker and Ukip.

The Match Of The Day host tweeted the mes­sage: “The #pre­mier­league will be thrilled.”

The Ukip spokesman then com­mented: “Gary Lineker is a some­what sanc­ti­mo­nious, well-paid TV celebrity who has their own opin­ions.”
