Johnson & Johnson Sues Red Cross — And Loses

Almost a year ago, I blogged about an unusual trademark lawsuit, Johnson & Johnson Sues Red Cross, which I introduced as “a trademark lawsuit today that sounds as if it wants to be a law school exam, or maybe the background noise for a legal thriller.”

Well, most of the case got decided this week and it didn't go well for J&J: Judge Sides With Red Cross Over Trademark. Interestingly, the court relied most heavily on 18 U.S.C. § 706, which hadn't been part of my first take on the case, although it was pointed out by James Grimmelman in a comment.
