BRE (Brock Racing Enterprises LLC) has owned the trademarks to its logo and to its race car graphics (placement of stripes, colors, etc) since they began using them commercially in 1967.
It's obvious that if people create commercial products that use these trademarks (like models) they need to be licensed from BRE to do so. Another aspect however is personal use. If someone uses BRE's trademarks personally and that use is seen by the public (e.g. a clone car) BRE has a legal obligation to clarify that they still own their trademarks and the other person is not trying to claim ownership for themself. BRE also has a business insurance requirement to clarify that BRE is not liable for anything that might result while someone is using BRE's trademarks for personal use.
