there are some special cases out there. i'm reading a copyright infringement case called JCW Investments v. Novelty, Inc. (289 F.Supp.2d 1023).
a company who makes a doll called "Pull My Finger Fred" is pissed off at another company for making dolls named "Fartman" and "Fartboy," dolls that look eerily like "Pull My Finger Fred."
there's something really, really funny about companies arguing about farting dolls, and about a court writing a serious opinion about farting dolls. i'm giggling like an idiot in my office.
for crying out loud, the opinion has a short history of the pull-my-finger joke! how awesome is that?!
heh-heh. pull my finger. huh-huh. fartman.
