Toyota mulls legal action against Brexit group for logo use

Toyota are not amused by the use of their logo on Leave campaign materials. The manufacturer is reported to be considering taking legal action. The offending leaflets (which also refer to five other carmakers) don't state in so many words that Toyota support Brexit (which they clearly don't), but does say that the companies have all said that they wouldn't pull out of the UK if the UK pulled out of the EU. It sounds as if the action would be for trade mark infringement - and given that Toyota probably haven't registered trade marks for political campaigns, they would have to argue that the use is detrimental to the reputation of their trade mark, which sounds about right.
