HEISMAN v HE IS the MAN shirts


he is the man heisman.jpg
The Heisman Trophy Trust prevails on summary judgement that defendant breached prior settlement agreement not to distribute confusingly similar HEISMAN TROPHY shirts. Decision discusses HE IS the MAN shirts but I can’t confirm that the design illustrated above was part of the suit.
Question for discussion: Where the name of an award is trademarked (HEISMAN, OSCAR, GOLDEN GLOBE) to what extent can third parties make fair use in advocating candidates?
