Yesterday’s Wall Street Journal had an extensive article on about companies that “borrow” trademark equity, or purported equity, from others to build their brands, pushing the edges of fair use and perhaps then some.  Marty Schwimmer has some multimedia backup (ok, well, talking heads) on this case, too.
