Intellectual Property Questions Popping Up Again

from the they-never-go-away dept

I remember the big lawsuits from three or four years ago concerning “framing” content sites. Apparently, the issue was never really settled because here’s a new lawsuit on the matter. Castrol is being sued for framing someone else’s content. I tend to side with Castrol. They haven’t done anything wrong in framing another site. If it really upsets Haymarket that much then they should take their content away – or at least block any visitors from Castrol. And, here’s another article discussing trademark issues for food products online. Since you have to police your trademarks to keep them, companies are hiring people to sit on the web and find any and all violations of trademarks on things such as “Derby Pies”.
