What a great day it's been for the Nairobi Treaty on the Protection of the Olympic Symbol. First the IPKat hears of the accession of the Kyrgyz Republic (see earlier blog today); next it's the turn of Croatia, a smaller but rather more successful nation of athletes, to do the same. Infringers, counterfeiters and small honest traders who have used the word "Olympic" from time to time but haven't yet been sued -- watch out! You'd better stop by 20 November 2004 or you can expect to pay the consequences ...
