Trade mark infringement-NOT!
sources is a federally-registered trade mark, and has been
since 1977. Any organization that is in a comparable business to
ours- such as publishing, databases, information storage-and that
uses "sources" or a name like it will be infringing our
"sources" also happens to be a word everyone's discovering.
While this is comforting, a lot of those discovering it seem unaware
of trade mark legislation.
Many clearly do not have a search conducted before they proceed
to call their publication, or section or supplement, sources-this
Thanks to those who have drawn four such infringements to our attention
in the past few months. We ask that anyone who sees a likely infringement
let us know pronto.
Remember, there's only one sources. It's the one for journalists.
Accept no substitutes.
