My First Christmas card

I got my first Christmas card this morning - from the Royal Mail.  What a waste of money for an organisation that is struggling for its survival  Huh  I think they could have found a better use of their money.

If it's the same one as I got then on the back at the bottom they are claiming copyright of the colour RED.
Now I have seen RED used in the forum and didn't realise Plusnet were paying royalties to The Royal Mail for the right to use it. Crazy

Re: My First Christmas card

I can't imagine RM would win a case in court over their ownership of the particular shade of red.  Wonder if it's from a Dulux paint chart Roll eyes
ASBO, couldn't get over your second link.  How stupid can they get? Crazy

Re: My First Christmas card

I received my Royal Mail Christmas card in the post today too.  Christmas is 5 weeks away  for goodness sake and the whole thing is a supreme waste of time and money.
It could have been spent giving the posties a bonus.
