No pain, no gain. *Smile*
You got this, Mike!
Thanks so much to everyone who dropped by, sent a cNote, or figured out some other way to say "Happy birthday!" yesterday! BTW - and maybe it's just me - but hiring that skywriter may have been a little much. *Rolling*
Happy (late) birthday! *Hug1**Smile**Hug2* I thought the skywriter was a great idea, but I agree that maybe we could have forgone the sonnet we added to the "Happy Birthday, Soldier Mike." It was pricey and the words kept disappearing before we were done, so we made 3 different attempts before giving up. Ah, well. We tried. *Think* *Bigsmile* *Laugh*

Saw a Tesla today with an oddly-appropriate license plate: DURACEL. Had to wonder about possible trademark infringement, though. I know, I know - one L vs 2 Ls. Still...
Interesting legal question.

If I were on the jury of a trademark infringement suit, I would say that Duracell is not harmed by a vanity license plate.

The car's owner is not using the name Duracell to profit off of it.

If anything, then the use of this name on the car should be compared to a geeky fandom and be welcomed.

People have tattoos of trademarked words and images or characters and that all falls under protected free speech.

A misspelled brand name should fall under the same "fair use" exception.
That's called "free advertising".
