Copycats, And The Law!
Whether you are going into business, or already are, you need to know the laws of “copycats”. Being a copycat or infringing on ones copyright, is sometimes unintentional, or often times it is intentional. Everyone remembers “Toys R Us”, and their ferocious protection of the backwards “R”. Sometimes little stores, or even day cares, which had nothing to do with selling toys, or baby clothes, would be caught up in a huge lawsuit, just for that little backward R” in their title name. It is understandable that they wanted to protect their trademark, no matter how trivial. Although in their case, not so trivial. Everyone associated that “R” with their name. So, if a place used it, and were less than scruple, it somehow could have affected the Toys R Us brand name.
