Where you may have a point is the players who name themselves after famous brands.
Suppose a guy calls himself "Coca_Cola" and starts making death threats in game.... this could bring trouble to WG.
I guess they filter these names out so it cant happen. They would be really stupid not to.

Though why Coke would ever be angry about them using it I don't know, it's some of the best free advertisement possible. Drinking Coke in game literally made your crew perform better at everything they did.

Mostly because it's simply "Cola" in white on a red background, in italics, and doesn't really look like the Coca Cola logo.

Are you trolling? It certainly seems that way.
If I were an W.O.T Executive I would just perma-ban you for instigating "whistle-blowing" on such a serious matter as copyrighting with no conclusive evidence.
Provide proof of your allegation!!!
Keep in mind that "Coke" is only a general reference to the product of Coca-cola which can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coca-Cola

So yeah, they take copyright issues seriously which is why the Case of Cola in game is not called Case of Coke.

Stocking soda at the local 7-11 doesn't count as working for "Coke-cola", whatever the frack that is...

from coke's website (http://heritage.coca-cola.com/ Page 1943 )
coke has always had brilliant marketing methods and this was a massive boon for the company...

Any abbreviation should always be accompanied by the word "an" and not "a".
Check out number 7 in this link and see why the word an was used in front of W.O.T

I'm not trying to make problems's rather fix what Wargamming holds strong to there eula. They have made issues with other gaming company's and shut down anything that looks like a WoT
Please watch the video @ 2:00 mark
What i'm trying to understand if Wargamming asking permission from Coca cola to use there logo and name there drink as a pay to use item on WoT

What you're failing to understand is that there is no longer any mention of Coca-Cola in the game. If you look at the case of cola that flashes up in that vid, that's all it says it is, a case of cola. The announcer screwed up and said Coca-Cola. Perhaps that was a personal slip up that editors missed (remember, pretty much everyone that worked on those vids lives outside the US and that announces mispronounces things regularly in the videos he does) or perhaps he was reading from a script prepared before the item was changed.
