I was having a think about this - as I understand it with the GameBoy every cartridge needs to have the Nintendo logo in at the start of the ROM. This was so that, if you made an unlicenced game, Nintendo could say that you were breaching their copyrights by pointing out you included their logo without their permission.

I had a look at the CD32 trademark file and there's this:

I guess Commodore tried pulling the same thing. Who actually owns the logo now, and would they be the only people able to contest a new commercial CD32 release?
