A certain professional football league is very, very protective of its trademarks. And who can blame them? They've invested a lot of time and money in building their world-class brand. What are they supposed to do? Sit idly by while unscrupulous con artists manufacture shoddy bootleg merchandise, or offer pirated broadcasts of games on the Internet, or claim that the Acer X241WSD 24" Widescreen LCD Monitor is endorsed by a certain star-spangled quarterback with an Irish last name?
No, sir. Why, if they let just anybody claim that the Acer X241WSD is the official 24" widescreen monitor of The Big Game, soon such endorsements would be worth nothing at all. Any laxity in the defense of their intellectual property would set a dangerous precedent – one that would allow you, us, or anybody to say that the Acer X241WSD is the only monitor a certain troubled veteran wide receiver will use. Even if the monitor in question has a 1900×1200 resolution and 5 millisecond response time, such a claim would be spurious and misleading. In the face of such giant violations, the holder of the trademark is under no obligation to stand pat. Riots have started over less.
After all, no football fans should be told to buy the Acer X241WSD under false pretenses, whether those fans live in Foxboro, MA, East Rutherford, NJ, or Phoenix, AZ. No, there is absolutely no evidence that a certain head coach prefers to watch his secret surveillance videos on the Acer X241WSD. So we applaud the major-football-league-which-shall-not-be-named. It doesn't matter that the Acer X241WSD, which is just super, bowls us over with its crisp, vibrant picture – the fact is, it has no connection to any major sporting event being played today. To say otherwise would be lying, man.
