In intellectual property law, specifically with regards to trademarks, a trademark usually only covers a specific type of product or service. Thus, while Trump may own the trademark for his name when it comes to hotels, or steaks, or suits, unless he also sells Trump brand toilet paper, the trademark protection would not apply to products in that category.

I'm guessing Trump might possibly have sold Trump brand toilet paper at some point.

The really really classy toilet paper used at Trump hotels. :mrgreen:

I don't know this, but it's not implausible.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Yes and no.

http://www.dmlp.org/legal-guide/tradema ... r-business
Traditionally, there was nothing to prevent someone from using a trademarked name in a completely unrelated field or industry (for instance, Delta Faucet and Delta Airlines) because there was no possibility that consumers would confuse one for the other. However, the emergence of something called "anti-dilution" law means that the owner of a "famous" trademark (it means pretty much what is sounds like) can prevent you from using it even in an unrelated industry.
In the case of Trump® Toilet Paper, they are also using an image of Trump's face, so that would seem to be an obvious infraction if done without his agreement.

I wonder if that's really what happened.

I'm not approaching this as a Trump apologist and I'm not saying it couldn't have.

But these guys do lie a lot.
