I've also seen complaints with the NASA suit. The toy maker's can't put NASA logo's on the suit due to NASA copyrighting everything
Three things:
1) Logos are trademarked, not copyrighted.
2) Since it's a government agency, it can't copyright or trademark anything. There's a separate statute that disallows unapproved use of government seals and logos without unofficial approval, unless it's commentary or creative work which falls under first amendment protections. Commercial uses, like merchandise, doesn't fall under that category.
3) Why the hell wouldn't NASA approve of Doctor Who? Did they even bother asking?
