Intellectual Property example: Trademark and Copyright
Here is a hypothetical example, for educational purposes only.
Suppose a client had the following image below and wanted to use it to advertise a new online business selling candy. The client thinks that by using a photograph she took during a family vacation, everything should be fine.
She thereafter receives a cease and desist notice from the Hershey Company legal department.
Panicked, but being a self-starter interested in solving her own problems, she finds a website http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/metaschool/fisher/domain/tm.htm that looks like someone from Harvard wrote it.
What should she do?
