BBC Coverage

The BBC recently covered the right to use the umlaut.

"Manchester based kitchen firm allowed to keep umlaut."

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/youandyours/items/04/2006_17_wed.shtml

"Moben won the right to place two little dots over the 'o' in its name."
This dispute arose after a consumer complained to the Advertising Standards Authority that the dots made you think Moben was German.

Robert Clark from Retail Knowledgebank explained that the actual pronunciation would actually be 'Mooben' but in the UK it does not actually change the sound and so does not perform any function. The original dispute centred around the idea that the dots made the company appear as a more efficient German make, i.e. that it reinforced the idea of German solid quality - as associated with many Northern European car manufacturers. VW, AUDI, VOLVO.

Chris Gooding from Moben explained that the umlut was allowed as it "Preserves the identity of the company and that the umlut was just a attractive design feature"
