Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions
Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.
I am a spheroidal, candy-coated piece of chocolate. If I wear a mask and carry a sword, have I violated Zorro's trademarks?
Answer: Zorro Productions seems to think so. We'll find out in court, I guess. (THR, Esq., Zorro Sues Over Masked M&Ms Character)
2) Question: I saw your earlier post
about laws against putting permanent tattoos on your children, thanks for the heads up on that! Related question: Is it okay for me to bring my 13-year-old with me when I climb Mount Everest?
Answer: Hmmm, tough question. Can a 13-year-old "consent" to climb Mount Everest? (Legal Profession Blog, 13 Year Old Climbing Everest? More Than Just Bad Parental Judgment?)
3) Question: I am a speed vigilante. No, I am not a policeman or anything, but I do own a black Ford Crown Victoria that I have equipped with lights and a siren. Now I can just flip the lights and siren on, pull people over as needed, and admonish them to slow down. Win-win, right? Fun for me, safer community for all?
Answer: No, no, no. You cannot create your own police car. And eventually, you are going to pull over an off-duty police officer who will not be amused. (AP, AZ Man Convicted of Pulling Over Off-Duty Officer)
