Do we know if the BBC asked for permission to use
logo in this way?
I don't see why they would need to. There is certainly no trademark
violation, since the way it was used couldn't confuse anyone into
thinking the BBC was associated with Wikipedia, and think the fair use
exemption to copyright would apply (they are essentially providing
commentary on the logo).
This is not the United States of America. It is *fair dealing*, not fair
But, yes. Essentially Thomas is correct.
