    In search of large BMW patch and roundel

    Greetings all,

    I'm in search of a Large "BMW" patch and a large "BMW Roundel" patch.

    Has anyone had any success with a reliable/honest vendor via the Internet? How about at an OEM Dealership?

    A search proved unsuccessful on this forum.

    There are a few vendors who sell BMW patches on the Internet... Has anyone purchased from these vendors?

    Tks/Cheers,

    B

    Do a web search for 8 inch BMW car patch. Just did it myself and found several sites. I just happened to have one on my desk, so I knew the size to ask for.

    If you're uncertain about the vendor check their rating - but I've never had an unresolved problem.

    Has always been a friendly patch vendor at the International Motorcycle Shows.

    If you can get to one, might find what you're looking for - I've bought several different BMW patches over the years this way.

    Good Luck!

    Hard to see how "reliable/honest" can coincide with copyright violator.

    This sort of thing should come from BMW dealer.

    Roundels yes. And they have many sizes.
    Custom work... Well... There lays the gray area.

    That heart is actually illegal.

    Actually more black and white, than gray.

    While this applies, specifically, to BMW clubs (including BMW MOA) it's probably safe to assume that it applies to everything.

    Following are the Logo Guidelines set forth by BMW AG and BMW NA and
    currently in effect.

    BMW of North America, Inc.

    Logo Guidelines

    The purpose of the following information is to provide a clear
    understanding of BMW AG's and BMW NA's position as it concerns the use of the BMW logo by authorized BMW clubs and to set forth legal guidelines for such use.

    Under US trademark law, failure to protect a registered trademark can result in loss of either the value of the logo or loss of exclusive claim to it. Ways such a loss could occur include the unprotested use of the logo in combination with another distinctive by non-authorized symbol or the adding or deleting of a design element to or from the recognized logo.

    In the past, this has been done with many Club logo designs.

    It is important to understand that BMW not only has the right to insist on
    cessation of trademark infringement, but, more inportantly, they have an
    obligation under law to do so. BMW has no desire or intention to stop Clubs
    from using the BMW logo, but must, under the law, describe the way in which
    it can be used.

    The BMW Roundel and the letters "BMW: (hereinafter also collectively
    referred to as the "BMW logo") are registered trademarks owned by BMW AG
    and can be used by only those authorized to do so by BMW AG. In the Untied
    States, permission to use the BMW logo can only be granted by BMW NA. No
    one is permitted to use the name BMW in an incorporated or business name
    unless written permission has been given by BMW NA.


    Only Clubs affiliated or associated with or recognized by the International
    Council of BMW Clubs will be permitted to use the BMW logo, and then only
    in accordance with the following:

    The BMW logo may not be adapted, stylized or incorporated as apart of any
    club/chapter logo.


    The BMW logo may appear on the club, chapter stationary and regalia only
    separate and apart from the club/chapter logo. (For example, on stationery,
    the chapter name and logo many appear on the top of the page, the BMW logo
    in the lower left corner).

    The letters "BMW" may not be joined with any other letters to form one
    word. (For example, BMW CCA must include a space between BMW and CCA).

    The letters should be written in Helvetica type characters).

    Failure to comply with the guidelines set forth as stated will result in
    legal action.

    In a unique, and in no way to be construed as a precedent for other club
    logos, the BMW Car Club of America, Inc, will be permitted to retain the
    use of its national club logo, the quartered United States map with black
    cross beam and the letters BMW CCA within the cross beam. This applies to
    the national club only. the design cannot be permitted for chapters.

    All chapter or club logos should be submitted for approval to:

    BMW Legal Department
    BMW of North America, Inc.
    P.O. Box 1227
    Westwood, NJ 07675-1227

    Sounds like you can't use it for a club logo.

    I know.
    I'm well aware of copyright law.
    Especially when it involves corporate logos.
