MIT Made in Taiwan Logo

Postby ichbinjenny » 05 Oct 2011, 07:03

Does anyone know offhand if you have to register your products or apply for usage of the "MIT" icon? I'm going to do some digging around later this week, but if anyone has experience with this, I'd much appreciate your reply.

(I updated the title so everything is clearer. Thanks!)

Made in Taiwan is simply stating the country of origin, like Made in China.

I have produced goods in countries all over Asia and have never had to register my products or applies for usage.

Any similarity to the above is purely coincidental? :)

lmao. It did look familiar, I just couldn't place it! Maybe I don't want to put that on my things. The distributor already has me worried enough about litigation from the W Hotel. :+)

People like things overly busy here. Actually, I bet this logo was edited down. The designer probably threw in lots of little splashes and overlapping circly-bob things. I bet there were a few extra words in there too, like "easy!"

It probably works well for the Asian market, with their more flowery writing systems, and isn't designed to appeal to westerners who are quite happy with a few words saying "made in Taiwan".
