Might be true, I don't know. You are an expert, so share your knowledge. 
What's the difference between e.g. Coca Cola with it's PD-old logo and 
Wikimedia? Why do we need copyright restrictions to protect our projects 
when Coca Cola (or any other company/organization with non-copyrighted 
logo) does not?
