smash is on a distinguished road

Interesting. Plenty of private replica sales active and badged. I think they are obviously keeping tabs on activity - at the end of the day it's their trade marks and they're entitled to protect. Business test is degree of frequency and scale borne out by various tribunals. They obviously felt it was commercializing their trade dress without permission.
Whatever it's a clear message - do not use our trade marks/trade dress. Looks like theyve locked on to Tribute. Not sure of implications for individuals who have bought and then genuinely selling - I'd hope they're purely targeting commercial production.
The one at auction I notice is not badged and auction house is at pains to point out what it is and what it isn't in description.
