    If I'm not mistaken, repaints of the Olympic ES44s can't be released because of the Olympic Committee's very strict copyright laws, basically forbidding people to share the Olympic logo or anything to do with it.... I could be wrong, but this is my understanding.

    Yeah, somebody did the SP Olymipics SD-40 years ago, and the USOC screamed bloody murder. Somebody should remind them that the word "Olympics" is at least two millenia old and comes from another country...

    Actually, it's not their "very strict copyright laws," it's their mis-interpretation of US copyright law and unscrupulous lawyers (that's redundant!) that they have working for them. Here's their, well, a good word escapes me, website: http://www.inta.org/index.php?option...9&getcontent=1

    If you read it, and related case law, there have been special laws passed protecting the USOC's trademarks that go WAY above and beyond normal copyright and trademark law. It's really a case of the corruption of the principals behind trademarks. The amazing thing is some of the words they own, not only original Greek Olympic mottos and slogans but the words "Pan American." It's actually pretty ridiculous.
