As has been noted, there is no juridical concept "copyleft" in the same
way as there is something well-defined called "copyright". In fact,
unless I have missed something, "copyleft" is completely void from
a juridical standpoint.

While an attempt to dress up like something else, the sign is for all
practical purposes a logotype.
