Russian company moves to trademark Sochi Olympic rings glitch

15:31 13/03/2014

MOSCOW, March 13 (RAPSI) – The Federal Service for Intellectual Property, Patents, and Trademarks (Rospatent) has accepted an application from Russian company Mirovye Shedevry seeking the registration of a trademark in the form of four Olympic rings and a snowflake, the service said in a statement.

Due to a technical hitch, one of five snowflakes that were meant to turn into the Olympic rings during the Sochi Winter Olympics’ opening ceremony on February 7 failed to open.

The closing ceremony paid tribute to the glitch when five enormous groups of people gathered to form the Olympic rings, and the top right group initially failed to expand, instead creating the appearance of a snowflake.

Several days after the opening ceremony, online stores offered Chinese-made T-shirts with four rings and one snowflake.

The XXII Olympic Winter Games lasted until February 23.
