Nobody can give you a definitive answer until the first case goes to court & we get a legal precedent set.

Indeed, no one can give a definitive answer on this one yet. In truth, some lawyers happen to think that on proper interpretation of the law, even screening the logo without covering it up should not result in legal liability.* However, it is very dangerous at present to recommend that: that course is only for someone brave like Karen Murphy who is ready to go the lengths necessary to test and prove the law.

The gaffer tape solution is a "safer" solution but remember even that is untested; so again all that can be said is that it could or really should be enough ------ but with absolutely no guarantee that the courts will agree that it is enough.

EDIT *Even Advocate-General Kokott seemed to support this view.

^ Again, for the moment, all one can only say is could and should but with no guarantee. :)

Your guess is as good as ours!

Only the Courts can establish what is and is not an effective work-around: And even then only after testing the matter in a real Case.
