Basically, you can trademark anything which makes your company logo look unique or distinctive. at&t has a trademark on the 'globe' logo....no other wireless carrier can use a globe in its logo, but if I were to make a kind of duct tape that had a globe in its logo, it would be okay.
Basically, the standard is 'the reasonable person', if a 'reasonable person' could possibly confuse the color of the T-Mobile logo with the color of the Aio logo, then it is an infringement, otherwise it isn't. You could totally use magneta on a car logo, because no reasonable person could confuse a car with a wireless company.
