I in no way mean to stir up controversy nor 'j'accuse'! - however ...

I was curious as to the legal point of view CR listers take to decal, logo, trademark repro's. I've seen everything from Campy stickers from Asia to Paramount, Pogliaghi, and of course Masi reproductions. Ive read about refusal from California restorers to provide any repro decals to anyone not restoring frames at their shop, and I've seen all kinds of complaints and debate about sticky v. water v. varnish repros ... But not once has anyone mentioned trademark laws or the propriety of permission to reproduce and control a manufacturers image and logo ... I haven't checked the archives so perhaps this has been debated over and over... Just a friendly inquiry from someone who has suffered copyright infringement in the music business over and over ...
