A Visual Joke And Also A Decent Exam Question

Here's a fun visual joke from David Weinberg that he calls Trademark Registered Copyright (and which he has placed in the public domain, thereby preventing the hypo from becoming a realo). I suspect that with only a little effort, it could be turned into a nice exam question in Trademark law. Which I'm not teaching this semseter.

What I need is exam questions for Administrative Law and especially International Law, which I'm teaching for the first time.

    1) Can an agency hold someone in contempt? If it can’t, can it enforce sanctions in court? Can such a decision to seek sanctions be reviewed administratively reviewed under the APA — and if so, should the court abstain until the agency finishes its review. (Insert wacky fact pattern)

    2) Which court(s) has jurisdiction to hear an appeal from a reparations action from the CFTC where the Petitioner resides in the following cities: Miami, Fairbanks, Dallas, New York, Trenton, Baghdad.

    3) Did the APA merely “organize” one’s right to judicial review, or does it actually provide substantive rights. Explain your answer citing cases and a common vein of legal theory.

    If you add a fourth exponent, with a u in a circle, you’ll be trademarked, copyrighted, and also kosher for passover!

    Of course, if it were an exam question, we put the U under the TM and ask if they can do that, and why or why not.

    Then put a line though it (like the “no smoking” signs) and ask them whether it can still be infringed upon.
