Out With the Old, In With the New
During our morning reading, we stumbled across a nifty little piece from Fortune magazine on major brands that have (somewhat) recently transitioned or “freshened” their well-known logos to something new and different. As a consumer, you have probably “felt,” if not actually seen, these changes during your weekly run to the supermarket. For a group of trademark lawyers, these rebrandings are profoundly fascinating, as it gives us a glimpse into the minds of marketers, and helps us understand how they are perceiving their own brand image as well as the public’s perception of it.
By now, you may have heard the 124th Maine State Legislature recently enacted “An Act to Prevent Predatory Marketing Practices Against Minors.” This law, at least on its face, appears to prohibit both the collection of personal information from a minor for marketing purposes without first having obtained verifiable parental consent as well as the actual marketing to that minor by means of such information acquired without the requisite consent.
