  Columbia Pictures at Reel Classics: Article: The History of a Logo -- the Lady with the Torch
The "Columbia Lady" who has worn her toga and held her torch high for most of Columbia Pictures' seventy-five year history, has a history of her own, although the facts get a little fuzzy in places and are completely missing in others.
In 1975 the Columbia Lady was dropped from the logo altogether and replaced with a simple sunburst representing the beams from her torch.
"Columbia" became "Columbia Pictures" on either side of the base of her pedestal, and in a less conspicuous rounded font.

These defendants fall into two categories: (1) affiliates of Columbia and RCA that were involved in the distribution of "Moscow" here and/or abroad, and (2) owners of major newspapers that published the allegedly infringing advertisement.

Columbia after the purported termination letters of July 8 and October 17 and the inconsistency of the July 8 and October 17 letters' simultaneous demands of full accelerated payment and termination of the license agreements.
Although Feltner argued in the district court that Columbia had already restructured the license agreement with Krypton's predecessor and that Columbia's practice was not to undertake subsequent restructures of licenses that had already been restructured, Feltner has failed to present sufficient evidence for a reasonable jury to conclude that this was in fact Columbia's practice.

 Columbia Pictures Television
This logo is actually the second half of the Columbia Pictures movie logo, and aside from a different color for the abstract torch, the footage also seems to be played faster than it is in the movies.
The words "Columbia Pictures" appear on either side of the torch lady, the word "Television" underneath, and underneath that, either "A Unit of The Coca-Cola Company" (with Coca-Cola in their logo font) or sometimes nothing at all.
However, since Columbia reportedly put their '80s Torch Lady at the end of Punky reruns when they were more common, it would stand to reason that this logo would be replaced today by the Boxes of Boredom.
