Friday Factoid: Preakness Is Well Protected

Providers of goods and services often register marks not only in connection with their core offering, but also in connection with related goods and services. For example, Maryland Jockey Club of Baltimore City, Inc. has registered PREAKNESS with the USPTO not only for horse racing events, but also in connection with drinking vessels, clothing and ornamental pins.
