The "fingers walking" logo they're using is a trademark of the Yellow Pages, so I expect them to get hit by a bank account -$millions penalty shortly, too. Logo theft from a litigious company = bad idea.



That caught me off-guard as well.

But from Wikipedia/Yellow_Pages:

  The term Yellow Pages is not a registered 
  name within the United States and is freely used by many 
  companies.

  AT&T ... never applied for a trademark on the logo. While
  they eventually received a trademark on a different 
  version of the logo, the version with the three fingers was 
  not considered by AT&T to be proprietary and they in fact 
  allowed any telephone directory to use it.
