Default Rolls Royce Engines and Logos

Maybe too much idle time, but was noticing and wondering why many airliners with RR engines don't have the iconic Rolls logo on the nacelles.

I mean back in the day when the Viscount came out, Rolls was synonymous with the airliner. Indeed, when BOAC got their 707-400s, they called them Rolls Royce 707s.

I also miss the Pratt and Whitney logos, but Rolls always was the premier name.

I know Virgin, British and Norwegian all have the RR logo on their 787 aircraft engine nacelles. I can't speak about others.
