You're no Hershey Bar
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND- A political candidate in Maryland whose last name is Hershey was ordered by a federal judge to stop using campaign materials that look like the famous Hershey chocolate bars.
State Senator Stephen Hershey, Jr. used dark brown signs with white lettering but was sued for trademark infringement by the Hershey Company.
Hershey argued his signs are different enough not to infringe on the trademark since they have a background of the Maryland flag in brown.
The judge issued a preliminary injunction, saying the company would win its lawsuit.
Hershey says he's been told by relatives he is related distantly to the founder of the company, Milton S. Hershey.
