Wouldn't you think that an AG would know the law regarding copyrights and trademarks?Oh wait...it's Mississippi...that explains it.
I have that same star on several cheap-o clip art CDs.
12:13, for a star? What's next, someone claims they have rights to circles? Maybe the descendants of Betsy Ross should sue the Cowboys.
Hey, it's exactly like the Cowboys logo, except for the red background, different line widths and proportions, and a different color of blue. Other than that, it's identical. I can see where someone might think that a political candidate in Mississippi was trying to infer to voters that he was actually associated with the Dallas Cowboys. His logo just screams "I'm a Dallas Cowboy", and therefore deserves the wrath of the people who apparently invented the star back around 1960.
Just goes to show you, if Jerry Jones spent more time w/ Wade instead of worrying about someone in Miss. using a star that, at best, RESEMPLES the cowboy star, maybe they would be 6-0 (but I doubt it.)
Hey, 2:48PM - I have some resemples - I pop 'em, but they just keep coming back. Maybe I should stop doing that.
12:13, If you added lots and lots of nice trees to Wise County, you'd have Mississippi. You're dealing in pots and kettles, my friend.
2:09Not a star, but the distinctive use of a star, or creating a unique image using a star as the base of the image. Michael Buffer said "Let's get ready to rumble" in a certain, distinctive way, and now he owns the rights to that phrase because he filed for, and was granted, a copyright for it.Pat Riley, the NBA coach, came up with the phrase "Threepeat". He filed for, and was granted, a copyright for it. He "owns" the word "Threepeat" as a result.So, yes, if Betsy had wanted to, she could have potentially filed for a copyright for her work.America, what a country.(copyright)Double Fake Leon Jaworski
ooooo sneaky :-)
People in Mississippi have been using a single star for a long time as a symbol of their state... (believe it or not...) Goes back to before the Civil War.Not that this ad has anything to do with that... just trying to capitilize on teh Boys.
Some guy running for AG isn't necessarily a great lawyer. Plus, some guy running for AG in Ol' Miss is no match for the Death Star that is the Jerry Jones Empire. (No sinister implication there, I just thought it was a humorous analogy.)
To 2:18...*LOL*YOU are REALLY good. I love snarky sarcasm.*StillLOL*
To 4:38...So VERY true.
