Is it possible that Specialized, that bastion of intellectual property protection, would co-opt Bianchi's signature color?

It's pretty close, but I don't know that I'd call it Celeste.

And, unless Bianchi has trade marked the color, like Park Tool has done, there really isn't anything to protect (or infringe upon depending on your pov).

Not sure whether Bianchi has a trademark on the color. Not sure that they should be allowed to either, but nor should someone have the trademark on Roubaix...

Picture for those trying to make up their mind:

Think that's a little darker than bianchi Celeste. But it's close.

That's more teal.
Bianchi is a little more seafoam or aquamarine.

I would call that aqua or turquoise. Bianchi celeste (traditional) is greener. Riv Atlantis was almost exactly the same color and specialized didn't sue them!
