Submission + - Johnson & Johnson Loses Suit Against Red Cross (

Dekortage writes: "As mentioned last year on Slashdot, the health-products giant Johnson & Johnson had sued the American Red Cross over its use of the ubiquitous "red cross" emblem. They have lost, thankfully. From the article: "Judge Rakoff said the doubtfulness of Johnson & Johnson's claim against the organization was 'well illustrated by the ironic fact' that in 1986 the company itself entered into a [brand-sharing promotional agreement] with the Red Cross... [in which it agreed] to donate 5 cents to the Red Cross for coupons redeemed to buy company products." Sounds like J&J has some egg on its face."
