MYRA v Barack Obama (well, US Treasury, really)


obama myra

Plaintiff uses MYRA to promote retirement accounts. Barack Obama promoted the myRA retirement account in his State of the Union address. Plaintiff sues US Treasury for trademark infringement. In two minutes of Googling I found that there is a Trademark Remedy Clarification Act that purports to limit sovereign immunity with regard to trademarks and at least one Circuit decision that held that provision to be unconstitutional.

Mr. President, the next time you are considering the use and registration of a trademark, we hope you consider our firm. We offer Manhattan credentials at White Plains prices.
