“The Sewerage & Water Board of New Orleans’ Crescent Cover Logo, also known as the Meter Cover Logo, is a federally protected trademark registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. It is also recognized and protected by Louisiana law, including a special statute that specifically pertains to the Crescent Cover Logo.”
“A woman was caught red-handed stealing two in Uptown, one local said. The water meter covers, with the iconic crescent and stars logo, are no longer manufactured, and the image is trademarked and protected by Louisiana law.”
The only cover with the iconic logo that I can find in the French Quarter is on St. Peter in front of the Upper Pontalba. Don’t steal it.
