While he was a politico he did not enforce the trademark......good point.
What is the law for a Doctor who writes books ?
Better yet, a private radio and TV personality....are they afforded protection ?
So with your logic one can say - A man does not own his name but another can buy it from the UNITED NATIONS............So with your logic the United Nations had a claim against Ron Paul's name, sold it to an Australian for commercial gain and the honest Paul supporter should protect the UN.......while ignoring US trademark law.....
Good Grief !
