    This thread is to show off your capitalist pride in displaying your favorite corporate logos. No discussion outside of the logos themselves will be tolerated!

    As for a few of my own, here's the NBC "N" from 1975:



    Turns out the logo was almost identical to one Nebraska's educational TV service had, Nebraska's ETV sued for copyright infringement. NBC settled out of court and gave ETV $800,000 of TV equipment and $55,000 to remove the old logo and design a new one.

    Here's the NBC one next to Nebraska ETV:



    I always thought the Holiday Stationstores logo was pretty similar, too.



    Here's the AT&T logo from 1984-1999:
