"wine and tequila might be said to be in the same or similar marketplaces, but it's more accurate to say they are in tangential markets. Both products might be sold in the same store, for instance, but nobody is going to accidentally buy a bottle of wine with the intention of buying tequila.
It's something I have been arguing for years: the marketplace distinction for trademarks needs to be more nuanced than a marketplace designation for something like alcoholic beverages."
I disagree with that reasoning. Companies often produce different kinds of products, like Diageo, Coca Cola and Red Bull. And they may try to use the same brand for different products.
If a customer sees a Pumpd energy drink and a Pumpd vodka, they may think they are from the same company.
In this case, Tequika Cuervo sounds Mexican and Il Corvo sounds Italian.
"First, holocaust laws make certain hate speeches criminal. Yes, every media concern, every forum, every person within the borders of Germany has to upheld that law. Including Facebook and including you, if you enter Germany."
But Facebook does not commit hate speech. Facebook users do.
Will German authorities punish email providers, telephone companies and pubs for letting people have hateful discussions?
"In other news, Comcast announced that the NBC Universal websites will throttle speeds for non-Comcast customers. AOL is belived to follow with non-Verizon customers. Fox and Disney are believed to be in discussion for similar deals with AT&T and Charter."
Another issue that undermines the United States political system us the lack of proportional representation in legislative bodies.
A party could get second place with 40% of votes in each circumscription but get no seats, as long as they don't win at any. That's why unsatisfied Republican and Democrat politicians won't leave to organize a third party with a purer ideology (like libertarian or anticorporation).
Here in Uruguay, a party with roughly 1% of votes gets one of the 99 seats, no matter where did they get the voted. And we also have proportional representation of departments, with a little overrepresentation of less populated drpartments.
