In Dubai, next to the court booking desk there was a sign saying something very similar.
The 3 Adidas stripes are NOW considered as sponsor's logo and hence must adhere to the logo size requiremnets. Players should not wear the Adidas 2005 line of clothing, with some exceptions, which i don't remember...
I see it as a fair, but unfortunate move.
I loved the stripes.
