Pebble warned to cease use of federal trademarks and logos

The Interior Department says that Pebble Limited Partnership’s advertisements promoting their mine are “misleading.”

Interior Department officials are warning backers of the proposed Pebble mine to halt illegal use of insignia of federal agencies in advertising and to prominently display a disclaimer that the Pebble Limited Partnership has no affiliation with several federal agencies.

The warning to Tom Collier, chief executive officer of the PLP, came in a letter of Dec. 13 from Interior Department attorney Lisa Kilday.

The letter directed PLP to confirm in writing by Dec. 27 that PLP has taken the requested action and agrees not to use the name, trademarks and logos of the Interior Department, Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, Fish and Wildlife Service or National Park Service.
