A Honda dealer in Vancouver, Canada who wanted to show support for the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks was forced to remove the team’s logo from their showroom.

Kingsway Honda manager Doug Lum told the CBC that the NHL informed Kingsway Honda that the use of logos constituted copyright infringement and had to be removed immediately. Lum cited Honda’s sponsorship as the NHL’s official car, and noted the irony of the legal reprimand.

Lum said that he didn’t plan to fight the NHL’s demands, but had the lettering altered to read ”Go ‘nucks GO.”
