Re: overhaul?

"HBO's trademark covers clothing, mugs, drinking glasses, hats, bags, mouse pads and similar tat."

That actually sees to be the sticking point in this particular instance though, because, as the article also states in the very next sentence "Redbubble is an online community of artists and a bazaar of t-shirts and bags printed on demand from artwork submitted by its users."

The question is, did HBO manage to successfully trademark the phrase for those uses in Australia where the website is based?
