That is no doubt true for major media corporations, but a lot of the uses
of the old logo are by born-digital outfits, where I fully expect the
procedure to often be "Google X plus logo and grab the first decent hit".

So there may be much value in the (admittedly unorthodox) rename proposal
relayed by Amir.  To my mind, the fact it is a logo justifies it.

Also, thought experiment: suppose a certain laborer-abusing
gadget-producing company, say "Elppa", changed its logo last year; suppose
it reached out to the community asking to replace our hosted version of
their old logo with the new one, because the media keeps getting it wrong.
Would we not accommodate them?
