ENTREPRENEUR v ENTREPRENEURESS. jumped the shark?


Entrepreneur Magazine sues ENTREPRENEURESS.

If you were a cynic, you could point out that perhaps it is indicative of the state of entrepreneurship and of IP law in the US, that IP rights are used to make it difficult to use the word ENTREPRENEUR to describe information about entrepreneurs, or to even coin new words that incorporate the ENTREPRENEUR letter string.
