THE CAT WITH SQUARE EYES


The IPKat gives you notice of a forthcoming TV programme of IP interest. Next Monday at 11pm Channel 4 is showing Trainers, Reggae and the Olympics, which details the sportswear company Puma’s sponsorship of the Jamaican Olympic team and its efforts to dissuade Jamaican reggae stars from singing homophobic lyrics. The IPKat looks forward to hearing about how one company undid a potentially tarnishing situation that was seeming a result of its own choice to sponsor the Jamaican team.

More of the Puma/reggae controversy here, here and here.
