...that Hasbro is selling Subbuteo trademark to Netcam S.L., the Total Soccer producer, and FISTF will add Subbuteo to his name...

Wasn't the S in FISTF at first supposed to mean Subbuteo? But was changed to Sport because of copyright. I think I read this from Peter Upton's tribute pages.

The question surely is if it is possible to add that to a federation name if the trademark is owned by someone else. It would need a license to use it also in the future, because otherwise it's problematic. What happens if Capponi and co will be ousted from the FISTF Board? Do they still give the name for free to use? And how does it go if a manufacturer is so closely in contact with the federation? Not just as sponsor...

Are there other possible problems in this?

I hope this will be done correctly so that no problems will develop.

I'm not really sure the copyright was the problem. I believe Laurent Garnier wanted to be totally independant of the producers despite FISTF was some kind of merger between ETF (independant) and FISA (Waddington's).

In Portugal, we have Subbuteo in the name of our Association - APS Associação Portuguesa de Subbuteo. In the time we created the association, we asked permission to use the name and it was granted, and we never had problems with the use of the name afterwards.
