Hi David,

Hi, :-)

They can certainly copyright their particular version. However, IANAL,
but I don't think they can copyright the whole concept of a paper
plane in general. Anyway, La Poste? Those guys can hardly stagger out
of bed in the morning... I'd be surprised if there would be a
problem... Anyway, their logo is in fact a bird, not a plane...

Think again, they can and have sued people for trademark infringement of
the marks they use to promote their business. Y'all should be checking
whether the "plane" concept has been filed as a trademark in association
with "office activity", "computing", or media (in the largest senses).

BTW, I am a lawyer, specialising in intellectual property.
