Hot cross lawsuit
Firstly, I've got to cancel my AT&T service. Now, I'm never going to buy a goddamn Band-Aid again.
After more than a century of sharing the same emblem, a red cross on a white field, Johnson & Johnson has sued the American Red Cross for using its trademark for other than non-profit purposes.One really has to marvel at the reasoning that must be present in the head of those who think up this stuff. Is this really considered a viable business strategy these days?
J&J claims the ARC is marketing first-aid kits to make a profit, while the Red Cross says the money from the sale of the kits goes exclusively to its relief services and called the pharmaceutical giant's lawsuit "obscene."
