ACOG, USOC SUE FOUR SUPER SHOW VENDORS FOR LOGO USE

     Four vendors at the Super Show received summons to appear as
defendants in a federal copyright and trademark infringement
lawsuit filed by ACOG and the USOC.  ACOG filed the lawsuit
Friday without knowing who they were suing, but ACOG and USOC
attorneys told U.S. District Judge Marvin Shoob they "would name
the alleged violators as they were identified over the weekend."
ACOG members then spread out across the show and found four
violators.  Two vendors were selling soccer balls with
interlocking Olympic rings, one was selling a glow-in-the-dark
Olympic torch and one was selling travel bags labeled "Olympic,"
according to Bill Ferguson, ACOG Dir of Enforcement.  ACOP Dir of
Commun. Darby Coker: "If you wait to file the lawsuit after the
show is over, people will have left and there will be no one to
serve" (Bill Rankin, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 2/6).
