American Red Cross lands right cross against J&J

Johnson & Johnson started it. The Red Cross wins it:

A federal judge last night ruled against Johnson & Johnson (J&J) in its suit to stop the American Red Cross from using the Red Cross emblem on first aid and other health and safety products sold to the public. The judge’s ruling represents a complete vindication of the right of the Red Cross charity to use its emblem or authorize others’ use of its emblem in the sale of products related to its mission. The money the Red Cross receives from the sale of these products is reinvested in its humanitarian programs and services.

Well, okay, that’s the Red Cross’s press release, anyway. Here‘s the opinion.

UPDATE: Good analysis from Ryan Gile.

UPDATED AND OVER:  Case settled.
