As I understand it you have to register an interest in every country you want to copyright your design for maximum time of protection. In the UK you're afforded 10 years protection without registering an interest and 25 years if you register it. It varies country to country.

But (I believe) the legal action is all around use of F name and logos which are trade marks - they haven't permitted usage and also theres the misrepresentation factor which would explain destruction request.

I think you're potentially in trouble just using same font and similar sounding name. There was a local shop called Aarods logo font and colours same as Harrods and they got jumped on.

I guess badge it as Tribute or not at all. I'd think badging it as Tribute may actually be safer than not at all as you're instantly declaring what it isnt
