Red Cross 1, J&J 0

In what seemed to be a slam dunk case for J&J (remember: J&J loans red cross logo, which they own, to Red Cross organization with stipulation that Red Cross not turn around and use logo to market other products, which they apparently did) it now turns out that Judge Jed S. Rakoff has “granted a request by the American Red Cross to dismiss J.& J.’s contention that the organization had promised not to engage in certain commercial activity, including licensing the red cross symbol to others and selling first-aid products in competition with J.& J.”

Can’t wait to hear more about this. Brief NY Times story here.
