@Alan Brown

In this case there is no product, no commercialisation at all. There is no need or right to protect any ‘mark’. In this case there is no right to protect.

In fact the dumb shit lawyers have hurt the mark. You can now safely use it as satire on this case.

Ie. “Just look at this case what a clear sign winter is coming”.

I would love to get Ariel Winter involved with this. “Are you trademarking my sexual escapades?”
