Marlboro Man Seeks to Snuff Out t-Shirt Maker

The fellow kicks the habit and then makes a t-shirt with a rough parody of Marlboro’s red box, but with “blood” dripping from the red part and “Death” instead of “Marlboro.” ¬†Marlboro sends a C&D letter. ¬†Story here.

I’ve been reading a lot about moral issues associated with patents on medicine, and so this struck me as relating enough to ethics to put it up.

Now back to medicine. CAFC announces its cases shortly, and the Supremes no doubt will issue some fun cases today or Monday…. but not on IP.
