Heartbreaking

I’ve expressed my opinion here about the piggish IP grabbing by Big College Sports.  So I enjoyed this from Mark Malek:

This is an update on my story in January about the trademark dispute between the University of Southern California and the University of South Carolina.  In that story, I noted that South Carolina appealed a decision at the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board that refused to register the school’s logo and that also refused to cancel Southern Cal’s trademark.  Apparently, the U.S. Supreme Court has decided not to hear South Carolina’s appeal (source) thereby ending South Carolina’s hopes of ever getting their trademark registered.

Aww.  Guess now that they’re done goring each other over the rights to fund “amateur sportsmanship” with the revenue generated by officially-college-approved pajamas, dental floss and tea cozies, these IP powerhouses can go back to some other mind-bobbling “enforcement” activities against the rest of the world!

The only thing more heartbreaking would be… I don’t know…

This!

I’m bad, I’m bad.
