asked to go for T&F YOG, but cant bring Nike or Adidas bottles?


http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/sh....php?t=2880704

"bring own money, no refreshment provided" can...

but wth is with no adidas or nike water bottles?
just because those 2 companies never sponsor so they just censor them out?


and wth is with "specially choosen"?
forced?
The Chairman of Singapore YOG Committee Ng Ser Miang denied online reports that Singapore students were being forced to support the YOG in an interview with Associated Press yesterday:

“There will be stories flying around…..But just look at the faces of the children that are there, the sparkle in their eyes and the smile on their faces. Those are not things you can force. I don’t think anyone will be forced to come to watch the torch relay or the games. So I don’t think there is any coercion.”
the letter is NOT a letter of consent.
its a ACKNOWLEDGEMENT letter

they are totally against anybody wearing or using any brands.
they consider that as advertising.
even our drinks at the field of play also have a different packaging.
the cap is 100 plus but the wrapper just put "Isotonic Drink".

but forcing them not to use a item that carries water is pretty much dumb.
its WATER!

and
are bottled water(Ice mountain, evian etc) considered refreshment?
if not they can just provide bottled waters to those who went.
since they can just wrap a label around a 100 plus,
it should be the same by asking the source not to put labels on a number of bottled water.

I know this idea might sound stupid/dumb and crazy!But maybe if they have a marker along,maybe use it and censored the logo......

alamak... your house only have nike and adidas bottles meh? no need so dramatic until like damn big case la. i guess i will agree they are a tad too aggressive, but no sponsorship can be akin to competitive products, as they are volunteers, they carry the company name. do you like seeing your employee wear or carry items endorsing your competitor?

anyway, if you claimed to be an unwilling forced volunteer, then just bring a nike/adidas bottle lo. they don't like, they'll send you home? win win right?

Re: asked to go for T&F YOG, but cant bring Nike or Adidas bottles?

A possible reason on why the "censorship" of brands is probably due to the Copyright and Intellectual Property

Since neither Nike or Adidas is sponsoring the event, allowing such branded goods onto the field could equate to an infringement of copyrights. Nike and Adidas could claim that the YOG was using their trademarks to give people the impression that Nike/Adidas endorsed the YOG, or is even using the brands to "sell" the YOG

As the copyright owners, it is Nike/Adidas discretion to decide how they wish to advertise their brand name. If they do not wish to endorse the YOG, there is nothing that the Co-ordinators can do except to reduce the amount of times such brands would appear, lest they get sued for copyright infringement

It's called brand protection.

Brands that did not endorse sponsorships of the YOG will not be used to prevent conflicting copyright issues and infringements.

No friggin' big fuss over it.

green apples, if you're INVITED to a function, of course some things are inappropriate right?

TS was invited, there are certain conditions to abide with especially with the IOC regulations about branding.

So I don't understand what you're saying. Spectators and Invited guests are different in the first place.

The problem of false advertisement.

By bringing the water bottles, it may give others the impression that Nike and Adidas are sponsoring the event.
When it comes to sporting events, it is almost expected and anticipated that major sport brands will be issuing out their goods as advertisements - not only to the participants, but also to the spectators in the form of goodie bags.

A possible problem is that those who bring such water bottles may give others the impression that Adidas/Nike is sponsoring the YOG and that they are providing water bottles as a free item. Then, some people will gripe that they didn't get the "free water bottle" and will make huge complaints over nothing.

Or, another reason could be because of brand competition.
Perhaps, another sporting brand that is sponsoring the YOG has specifically requested for the blockage of other brands to prevent their competitors to get "free advertisement"?

It's may or may not the actual reason, but its the only plausible one that I can think off at such an early time in the morning

Re: asked to go for T&F YOG, but cant bring Nike or Adidas bottles?

is that letter from YOG itself or the school?

if it's YOG, maybe nike/adidas didn't sponsor and those company that sponsor ask for them to not be shown on tv/media.

if it's school, maybe the school staff don't want their students to show off among themselves and with others. or that the school don't want to be blamed if the students lost/misplace/forget to take back their expensive branded water bottles?

anyway, it's just a water bottle, why are we discussing this eh?
aiyoh....


adidas is official supporter.
here..
http://www.singapore2010.sg/public/s...pic_games.html

about nike...i couldn't find in the official YOG site. the earlier one is fansite, not really accurate i think. hmm...

I too, do not get what the fuss is about for a spectator or volunteer to bring in brands from different companies. Spectators and volunteers have no added value to the brand, no one's going to buy it cuz some volunteer has it. Are the students also not supposed to wear casio watches (since Omega is an olympic partner), or use pentel/papermate pens as Pilot Pen is a sponsor?

btw, Adidas is an official supporter (tier 3, must've been the cheapest package) for YOG.

Sounds to me like a internal spite cuz they couldn't get Adidas to put in more $$ or Nike to even chip in. No problems with Converse?

SYOGOC seeks the cooperation of all companies who are not official sponsors of Singapore 2010 to avoid associating with the Games in any way. Any attempt to do so will result in legal action being taken to protect the intellectual property rights and contractual rights of our official sponsors.

regarding workingth's post above, i think that's to inform all non-sponsoring companies not to take advantage of YOG and its symbols/brands etc and the illegality of the matter.

but as spectators, what possible infringement can there be? plus they are only students?
i think it's overzealousness of the school or even some YOG committee members.

Exactly my point.

You ask me to go see ur show and u still wan me to go choose other bottles/clothes to wear? Dun expect me to turn up then.
Its not like i'm going to wear slippers and singlets.

Allow me to quote,

Although i do subscribe to the theory of multiple universes, in which universe is carrying/wearing my preferred brand of merchandise considered inappropriate?

Marc Jacob's wore a hermes watch while in a LV show.

Its just the organisers being plain kiasu, or to spite nike/adidas.
You need to see the big picture.

So what happens if i am an avid nike/adidas supporter? I only have adidas shoes and nike t shirts. How? Dun go lor.
