The Scouts of Australia, which was the previous title for this page changed its legal title in 2001 to "Independent Australian Scouts" so the article now resides under that title.Osjknights (talk) 16:24, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Fair use of logo image
To User:184.108.40.206. You say: "Fair dealing" under Copyright laws, internatonal copyright conventions and Wikipedia policies allow for use of material for critical comment including comparison.". You may be right, but you still need to give a rationale on the image page. Could you register on WP as your IP talk page may move? I would like to discuss issues with you, but I am also on a wikibreak at present. --Bduke (Discussion) 06:47, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
No change of name
Apparently the organization split with Scouts of Australia continuing as an unincorporated association while the corporation changed its name to Independent Australian Scouts. This would require two separate articles and a re-write. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 23:26, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
- The Scout Association of Australia operates as Scouts Australia (this in not uncommon). Scouts of Australia changed their name to the Independent Australian Scouts in 2001. -- Gadget850 (Ed) talk 00:13, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
This juxtaposition of statements creates an implied series of cause and effect that amounts to original research:
Independent Australian Scouts operated under the name Scouts of Australia from 1992 and registered the business name Scouts Australia. The Scout Association of Australia adopted the name Scouts Australia in 1997. Independent Australian Scouts adopted a logo consisting of a fleur de lis with a five star southern cross constellation above the word "Scouts" and applied for registration of a trademark in 1993. In 1997, The Scout Association of Australia changed its logo from a fleur de lis with just two stars to a fleur de lis with a five star southern cross constellation above the word "Scouts".  
Independent Australian Scouts offered a very simple organization structure. In 1996, The Scout Association of Australia simplified its structures and completely re-wrote its Policy Organisation and Rules 1993 as Policy and Rules, 1996.
- Let boil this down to one statement: "In 1997, The Scout Association of Australia changed its logo from a fleur de lis with just two stars to a fleur de lis with a five star southern cross constellation above the word "Scouts"."
- What does this have to do with the Independent Australian Scouts?
- And why the comparison of logos? -- Gadget850 talk 16:55, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
- And what has the Scout Association of Australia changing POR to do with the subject of this article? --Bduke (Discussion) 23:02, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
