Quote of the day: on trademark harm

Ralph Sharp Brown knew his stuff with respect to trademark theories of harm that go beyond lost sales: “Judge Frank has already pointed out that the defendant ought to have an opportunity to prove that he will not harm the plaintiff’s fair name. Good repute may be beyond price; but it is not beyond cross-examination.” Ralph S. Brown Jr., Advertising and the Public Interest: Legal Protection of Trade Symbols, 57 Yale L.J. 1165, 1194 (1948) (footnotes omitted).  Brought to you by summer research projects!
