INNW? Trademark

leave a comment »

Doritos has trademarked INNW? The JewFAQ blog noted the use of “if not now, when?” by Doritos in December, and noted the irony of using Hillel’s quote to market treif. That the US government has apparently approved an acronym of the quote as Dorito’s intellectual property is troubling. There is an associated logo, which seems appropriate for trademark, given the artistic design involved, but allowing an acronym from a 2,000 year-old quote seems wrong. Especially to market a product that the person quoted would consider treif.

Today is the 62nd Anniversary of The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. In the face of certain defeat these proud Jewish fighters stood up to overwhelming Nazi force. We should remember them.

So, I have been neglecting LibertarianJew.com. I plan to get things running again, but I am on temporary hiatus. My workload is overwhelming right now.
