Last year we wrote about the Clinton campaign's spectacularly unsuccessful attempt to abuse trademark law in order to silence a critic who sold t-shirts and mugs mocking that campaign's candidate. Now it appears that the leading candidate for the Republican Party's nomination is playing the same game, trying to use trademark law to take a swing at a site called www.stoptrump.us that sells t-shirts with a political message that's not to his liking. By making this non-starter threat, he's placed himself in the company of a failed lawyer. And here you thought that he couldn't demean himself any more. Then again, to quote Mel Brooks, "He's just crazy enough to do it", i.e to go to court, where the judge will laugh at him as he kicks him out onto the street.
