London 2012, the crackdown of Copyright Police

London (PRWEB UK) 1 July 2012

There has been an extraordinary crackdown by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on the use of images and words connected to the 2012 London Olympics. It is a crackdown first introduced by the Sydney Olympics with the Sidney 2000 Games Protection Act 1996, but that with London 2012 has taken a far more stringent turn. The London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Act 2006 enforces copyright of brand behind the most world famous sport event. Any unauthorized use of the Olympic brand will attract heavy penalties.

And the crackdown is not just on people borrowing the iconic 5-ring Olympic logo. The 2006 Act will punish anyone who uses all iconography connected to the Olympics and, worst of all, it will even prohibit the use of single words such as London “Olympics”, “Paralympics” etc., and word combinations such as “London 2012″. You can, of course, become an official sponsor of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, in which case, depending on sponsorship level, you will be allowed to use the coveted words and/or symbols.

Several companies have already been penalized and forced to make radical changes in their advertising campaigns. The website Marketing Week reported that the low-cost airline Easy Jet had to give up a commercial featuring 1992 Olympic pentathlete champion Sally Gunnell. Journalist Fulvio Bianchi, from the Italian newspaper la Repubblica, stated that Car manufactures Mercedes were slapped with a warning for having used “leaving for London” in an advertising campaign, adding that the same happened to fashion guru Giorgio Armani. Despite a signed agreement with CONI (Italian National Olympic Committee), Armani was not allowed to include the Italian Olympic team in one of their commercials (The reference is the same: Fulvio Bianchi from la Repubblica).

Doom & Gloom

To be affected by the crackdown are not just the big brands – pubs and restaurants too. For example pubs are not allowed to offer free Olympic game tickets during quiz nights or even broadcast live the games on their TV screens – a common practice when big sport events are on.

The same applies to charitable organizations. The Accademia Apulia UK, a non-profit London-based organization, has had to ditch all marketing material of one of their upcoming event because its name appeared linked to the Cultural Olympiad. A bunch of volunteers had in fact created a new logo for a multi-cultural event when the copyright police warned them of the infringement.

All are equal before the Law

The 2006 Act does not care if you are selling t-shirts outside the Olympic stadium or if you are promoting human rights. Again, Accademia Apulia, who wanted to link their multicultural-promoting project to the concept of universality as expressed by the Olympics, was met with disapproval.

?

Despite the initial setback with the copyright police businesses, large or small, have found by now a way of getting around the copyright restrictions. We know Accademia Apulia have.

Engines for Sale Website Launches with Ford, Chevy and Dodge Engines Priced Low


Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) June 29, 2012

Engines for sale are listed just about every hour of the day and most people are unaware that it happens. Automotive supply companies buy and sell engines in every U.S. state and use the Internet as the intermediary to do it. One retailer is bringing its successful offline business to the Internet for the first time in hopes of reaching consumers searching for cheap engine prices. Engines for Sale sells Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, JDM, Chrysler and Jeep motors to salvage yards and junkyards offline. In an effort to reach the consumer market, this retailer is now lowering its prices to compete directly with some of the largest engine sellers online. The launch of the website, http://www.enginesforsale.org, will be used as the main source of information and point of contact for businesses and individuals that want to buy engines from major automakers at low Internet-only prices.

The average person might be confused when searching for an engine to buy online. Automotive dealerships and engine sellers rarely give out helpful information that can be useful to someone with no engine buying experience. When an automobile breaks down or is in a collision, most people leave the process of engine buying up to an automotive service center or warranty company to find a suitable replacement. For owners of used vehicles without a warranty, finding an engine for a Ford, Chevy, Dodge or Chrysler vehicle could prove challenging.

People can be disappointed when searching for a quality engine on the Internet, said Jerry Conley, Marketing Consultant for EnginesforSale.org. Without a source of information, a person can make mistakes or pay high prices for a used, rebuilt or new engine for sale, Conley added.

A preowned engine is one that is gently used or that has been certified by a used engine seller to be in good condition. A replacement engine is not something that is in stock at a local auto parts supply shop or can be purchased from a car dealership. Large portions of used engines are distributed by engine dealers to salvage companies, junkyards and centers that perform warranty work for insurance companies. Some dealers do not sell engines to the public and require a trade business license for company accounts.

One way that EnginesforSale.org is differentiating its website from average sellers is by opening the doors of its warehouse to average people. The ability to sell engines directly to the public is one of the trends that have happened since the auto industry slowdown in 2008. More offline sellers like http://www.enginesforsale.org/ford/used-ford-engines-sale that once sold to offline business are creating Internet companies to sell engines at once protected trade discounts to consumers.

About Engines for Sale

As one of the top offline used engine retailers, EnginesforSale.org has now launched its Internet presence to take on major Internet engine sellers. What started with a single warehouse location in 2010 and a small staff has now grown into a national engine company. On any given day, salvage companies or junkyards order engines in quantity that are shipped to every U.S. state. The opening of the EnginesforSale.org website is designed to reach new customers that want cheaper prices for Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep engines online.

Cars are not cheap, the costs rising each year alongside general inflation. There are few ways to reduce or completely cover the costs of a vehicle. One way is to say the car is used for a personal business and to write it off as a business expense, but not everyone runs a personal business and can take advantage of this deduction. Another way to cover the cost of a car is to cover the car itself completely … with advertisements. This is called a wrap; your car is wrapped completely by plastic overlays that are covered in advertisements for local or national businesses who choose to promote themselves in this way. In exchange, a portion of or the total monthly car payment is covered by the advertiser. The willingness of an advertiser to wrap your car depends on how much you drive, how far you drive and the density of the traffic in which you drive. This ensures maximum visibility of the ads.

Getting car wraps jacksonville fl is a process that is started by a web search.

Baker Electric Inc. Announces 400th EV Charging Station Installation Milestone


Escondido, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012

Baker Electric, Inc. a full-service electrical prime and subcontractor, is pleased to announce its 400th Electric Vehicle (EV) residential charging station installation milestone. Baker Electric Inc. (BEI) installed its first Blink? Level 2 (240 volt – AC input) residential charging station in December 2010, and it has completed 417 residential installations to date. In addition BEI has installed 143 publicly available, commercial Blink Level 2 chargers.

Baker Electric Inc. is a Nissan Leaf / ECOtality certified Blink Network installer. BEI was recently recognized as a Best Performing Contractor in a Nissan Market Intelligence Report that surveyed customer service for Southern California EV residential charger installations.

The EV residential smart-chargers are designed to be efficient, safe and affordable. The all-weather proof wall mount charger is a solution for individuals living in both single and multi-family residences. Because the wall mount charger is a 2-piece design, BEI works with customers to customize the products configuration to best fit their space for easy day-to-day use. Nissan/Leaf owners have access to a variety of innovative and easy-to-use mobile phone apps to help them schedule charges during off-peak utility hours, check charges remotely, keep track of energy used and money saved.

Escondido homeowners, Michael and Rita Sabo, had Baker install both their electric vehicle charger, as well as a 1.4 kW rooftop solar system. Michael Sabo said, I like the feeling of being independent. Im actually generating the fuel to power my car from my own rooftop solar system. How cool is that! California has a very clean grid, but a rooftop solar system produces no pollution. You cant get any cleaner than that. The Baker Electric Solar installers are uber professionals. They made the extra effort and did a very clean professional installation.

With our EV charging station installations, Baker Electric Inc. is continuing to diversify into green technologies to meet the energy needs of Southern California, said BEI President Ted Baker. The EV Project recognizes our States commitment to support consumers with cleaner vehicles.

Selling Used Cars

There always comes a time when one needs to sell his used car. Easy this decision maybe, it is not that easy a task. Lots of things need to be taken care of, checked and put in order. When one decides to sell off a car the first thing that he needs to do is do proper advertising. Without it, the vehicle would get sold but the price at which it goes might not be of complete value.
There are many ways one can adopt today to spread out the word for a car available on sale. The most obvious one is to contact the local newspaper and get an ad printed giving out car specifications and a contact number along with your name. A small and necessary detailed ad usually costs up to $ 30 to $ 50. An ad can be made to run over for a several days however, it is more sensible to place an advertisement in the Sunday newspaper as on that day it always has more readers hence more people get aware of your offer.
Another way might be to put up a notice in the shops and departmental stores around the neighborhood.

Places like the Wal-mart usually have public notice words where people can put up notices for free for as long as they want. It is also a guarantee that people will look at your message and find out about the offer.
A third option can be to paste an ad on your car that you want to sell or any other vehicle that you use for work daily. Put up the car model number and other important details along with a number to call you on. A lot of people are surely going to notice it and contact you if they are in need of a car like the one you are selling.
Next comes the step of cleaning and washing up your car. Make sure your car is spick and span and looks good at sight. Clean up the interior, seat covers and all the mats. Make them stain free and air out your car by leaving the windows open for a few hours so that no foul smell keeps lingering on. Use an air freshener for a more pleasant effect. The effort would not go to waste as a cleaner looking car is more likely to sell.
After this, you will have to get your car checked by your mechanic. Ask him to run a complete check for all parts and make sure they are in good running condition. In case if there is a problem somewhere, get it fixed and save the bills for later showing it to your potential buyer. A car gone through all the mechanical checks always has more value than a car with issues.
In the end, make sure you have all the documents related to your car sorted out and at hand so that they are available to show to the buyer if he asks for them. That’s about all the important things that need to look upon before selling off your used vehicle.
