When the lawyers take over your company

Johnson & Johnson, the health-products giant that uses a red cross as its trademark, sued the American Red Cross on Wednesday, demanding that the charity halt the use of the red cross symbol on products it sells to the public.

Johnson & Johnson said it has had exclusive rights to use the trademark on certain commercial products — including bandages and first-aid cream — for more than 100 years. -- AP Story, via International Herald-Tribune
Yes, you're supposed to protect your trademark. But there's absolutely no way J&J can achieve anything other than a Phyrric victory here. The public will punish them for their foolishness.
