I thought Ironman was rather protective of their brand/name. Here is this year's motocross championship event logo.
Hey lawyers out there, I know in trademark law, you generally are granted for certain business silos, so is this far enough removed that they have no claim? Or is Ironman starting to abandon their protective nature? Or have they moved on and this is a signal that the USA is irrelevant now as a region having been used up and abandoned for greener pastures?
I find Dan's article interesting. I never realized how much of the claim to the words is based on smoke and mirrors plus horsepower rather than legal backbone.https://www.slowtwitch.com/Features/The_trademark_272.html
