Anybody Know Anything?

Recommended Posts

Went home for the AEK Athens game and noticed a change on the ground, "The Peoples Club" has been replaced by "Nil satis nisi optimum". heard something about Everton not being able to use that particular saying anymore, Can anybody throw any more light on it. ?? :mellow:

Fairly sure I saw an article about a market trader that made claim to the phrase by registering it and was threatening the club with legal action.

Whether or not that is the reason who knows?

It was a market trader, who supports Everton who trade marked the name, Everton never did. However Everton were already discuessing changing it from The peoples club to Nil Satis Nisi Optimum as thats what fans prefer. Personally i dont think they wanted to pay the market trader anything.

it came up at a shareholders meeting that the term peoples club was offputting for possible investers ie linked to communism...thats what i heard.

 

I never heard that! Sounds a bit far fetched?

 

I don't know anything about the "the people's club" trademark, I've just had a look at the IPO office website and it was registered in February 08. Presumably it was to sell items at the market stall with the people's club on but preventing other traders doing so, and judging by the quote above, he was allowing Everton to use it.

yes he would let everton use it at a price...everton have done the right thing moving away from the peoples club logo...nsno is the best...the thing is the trader has now lost out both ways he wont sell logo stuff because no one will want it...anyway it was only good to annoy the rs they hated it.

he never dd it to sell items with peoples club on, just to own the rights and sell them to everton. Could have been a nice little earner for him. Cant believe everton never got it secured themself, considering the money spent on it over the last few years.
