I’ll try to summarize: Two brothers started an apparel line using (verbatim) the sign for M-22, a highway in the state of Michigan. Then, after other companies tried to use the same sign, the brothers got all upset saying they owned the M22 graphic, which they don’t because it’s a sign in the public domain but now some judge says the state can not stop the brothers from trademarking it… And the case is unresolved as of yet, but there is something douchey about stopping others from using a graphic sign that doesn’t belong to them to begin with.
