Don’t Mess with the Obama CampaignJune 8th, 2012
The Obama Campaign Committee is suing a DC based website over the use of the signature “O” logo, claiming trademark violation. This particular website sells “O” T-shirts, bumper stickers and buttons claims to be working cooperatively with the Democratic campaign. The lawsuit, however, states that the website has only done harm with the sale of competing items which are considered campaign contributions and a point of contact for future fundraising efforts.
The Washington based company has been a cooperative provider of political campaign materials since 1985 without issue. The owner of the company states: “I think people prefer to have the freedom to buy the merchandise where they want to.” Many other companies sell similar campaign materials and have yet to face legal action. If this particular lawsuit is successful, the website will have to take down all of the “O” items and award the Obama campaign for damages.
