I don’t know much about trademark law (fortunately, I have our intellectual property guru to consult when such questions come up), but I liked a post I saw recently that reported on a trademark dispute. I liked it because it involves Darryl Hall and John Oates, also known as Hall & Oates. Those are both registered trademarks, by the way.
As I have noted on my other blog, Hall & Oates had their heyday in the late 70s and early 80s as one of the greatest blue-eyed soul groups ever. I enjoy the story, although I’m not sure it’s accurate, that they met as music students at Temple University in Philadelphia, where lots of great soul and R&B groups originated.
