Favored organizations with super-trademark rights #makerbusiness

Prepared To Sue Hacker Scouts Boyscots- Of Amercia-1

Here’s a follow up, we were wondering what other organizations had super-trademark rights like Boy Scouts (basically no one can use “scouts”) – here’s a post Boy Scouts and Olympics Get Extra-Special, Speech-Quashing Treatment From Congress by Public Knowledge.

In the past Congress has granted certain organizations, such as the Boy Scouts of America and the Olympics special treatment when it comes to the use of names and logos. But with today’s trademark laws, isn’t it time to revisit the use of the law?

There are 36 total that have super-trademark rights (thanks Michael):
