Signing Off (and Giveaway for IP Prawfs!)

Qualitex_giveaway_200

Thank you to PrawfsBlawg for the (extended) guest blogging stint. As I sign off, I'd like to announce a little giveaway for the IP folks out there.

To celebrate the grand-reopening of my Museum of Intellectual Property – now with all exhibits up on the web – I am offering to any bona fide teacher of Intellectual Property or Trademark Law a swatch of fabric from an actual Qualitex press pad cover, resplendent in its trademarked green-gold color. As the IP folks will know, Qualitex successfully defended its color as a registered trademark in the landmark IP case, Qualitex Co. v. Jacobson Products Co., 514 U.S. 159 (1995) (holding that color can be registered as a trademark, overruling the Ninth Circuit).

What is that you say? You have the green-gold color in a slideshow? Unacceptable!!! The only way you can truly experience the Qualitex hue is live, and in person. As Qualitex notes on its website:

The Unique Green Gold Color is a Registered Trademark of the Qualitex Company. (The color on your screen may NOT be an accurate display of the Qualitex Green Gold!)

So, if you'd like yours, please send an e-mail with your physical mailing address to ejohnson@law.und.edu by September 19. I'll need everyone's request by then so that I can know how finely to divide up the material that I have on hand. And don't worry, the Museum of Intellectual Property will retain a full, intact Qualitex press pad on display.
