1. TCO F. Men2Wimmin (M2W) sends a cease and desist letter to Clean Clothes (CC) demanding CC stop using M2W’s tagline, which is registered with the Trademark Office. Clean Clothes responds, stating that (a) CC’s tagline is different enough as not to violate the trademark, (b) CC didn’t know about M2W’s tagline so they couldn’t have copied it, and (c) Men2Wimmin has no damages and therefore can’t sue Clean Clothes. Analyze the case for Men2Wimmin, including the elements of any case they have, and explaining any defenses that Clean Clothes might raise against them. What damages can they request, and do you think they will get them? Why or why not?

It is discovered that 2 weeks before the Ellen show, she had sold $2 million in JOSB stock (at a gain of about $2,200). The morning after her show, Ellen sold JOSB short (which means she was betting the stock price would go down), and she made another $210,000 in the next week on that trade. The swing in the price was not directly tied to her comments but was suspected to be a result of a recall JOSB made on their entire line of men's black and brown dress slacks when it was discovered that they had been sewn together with white thread. Ellen's previous trading activity shows that she made it a normal practice to “vigorously trade” the stock of any company with which she did business. A review of her trading activity for the past year showed that she had bought and sold JOSB stock 25 different times, including short sales like this one. Her overall trading for JOSB stock for the last 12 months was a net loss of $82,000.00. Do you think the SEC will file anything against Ellen for her sales of JOSB? Is there any cause to do so? Analyze her transactions with respect to insider trading activity (based on what you know) and whether she should be concerned. Is her prior trading activity a defense? Should Ellen…...

...Week 2 Homework – GM520. 1. State the administrative agency which controls the regulation. Explain why this agency and your proposed regulation interests you (briefly). Will this proposed regulation affect you or the business in which you are working? If so, how? Department of Agriculture Agricultural Marketing Services The proposal interests me because it deals with businesses who voluntary want their plants inspected against USDA guidelines for diaries. This is interesting because I would think each dairy would be required to be inspected and not voluntary. Being that the fee may rise and the inspection is voluntary then most likely those businesses will pass the cost onto consumers. This could potentially affect my clients who have children and need dairy products to meet their babies’ daily needs. I hope to safely assume all dairies would want to be inspected and graded according to USDA guidelines in the event something of bad product being introduced to the public. 2. Describe the proposal/change. The proposal increases the fee for business who wants their dairy plants inspected against USDA inspections and grading services. These fees were last adjusted in 2006. According to the regulation, “despite the adoption of technologies that have improved services, additional changes in operations that enhanced efficiencies, and reduced employee numbers, increases in salaries, technology investments, and general inflation have more than offset savings resulting in the...

...Melinda Roberson GM520 Week 2 Homework I am choosing to write my paper on the Hours of Service of Drivers, Proposed Rule, 75 FR 82170, December 29, 2010. The administrative agency which controls the regulation is the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). This proposal interests me because when I was in middle school my cousin was hit by a driver which ended her life. After extensive investigation they found that the driver fell asleep behind the wheel due to him working two days straight. This proposal will not affect me or the business in which I am working in but it will give me peace of mind if passed because no one should have to lose their loved one in such a tragic way. The proposal is to help promote safety and to protect driver health, FMCSA proposes to revise the regulations for hours of service for drivers of property-carrying commercial motor vehicles (CMVs). To achieve these goals, the proposed rule would provide flexibility for drivers to take breaks when needed and would reduce safety and health risks associated with long hours. The proposed rule would make seven changes from current requirements. The proposed rule would make seven changes from current requirements.

...A well-known pharmaceutical company, Robins & Robins, is working through a public scandal. Three popular medications which they sell over-the-counter have been determined to be tainted with small particles of plastic explosive. The plastic explosives came from a Robins & Robins supplier named "Casings, Inc." which supplies the capsule casings for the medication pills. Casings, Inc also sells shell casings for ammunition. Over $8 million in inventory is impacted. The inventory is located throughout the Western United States, and it is possible that it has also made its way into parts of Canada. Last fall, the FDA had promulgated an administrative proposed rule that would have required all pharmaceutical companies which sold over-the-counter medications to incorporate a special tracking bar code (i.e. UPC bars) on their packaging, to ensure that recalls could be done with very little trouble. The bar codes cost about 35 cents per package. Robins & Robins lobbied hard against this rule, and managed to get it stopped in the public comments period. They utilized multiple arguments, including the cost (which would be passed on to consumers). They also raised “privacy” concerns, which they discussed simply to get public interest groups upset. (One of the drugs impacted is used for assisting with alcoholism treatment – specifically for withdrawal symptoms and many alcoholics were afraid their use of the drug could be tracked back to them.) Robins & Robins argued that people......

...Week 2 Homework – GM520. By Sam Jhonson 1. The Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Reserve Board was seeking amendments to the Risk-Based Pricing Rule that would require creditors, as of July 21, 2011. I am starting my own business so this interests me as to how the credit scores are reported to the consumers. 2. The proposal makes the creditors to disclose the credit score information to the consumers when a credit score is used in setting or adjusting credit terms. Also consumers who receive the notice can obtain a free credit report to check the report’s accuracy. As an alternative to providing the notice, the Rule permits creditors to provide credit applicants with a free credit score and information about their score. 3. The agencies should provide additional information related to credit scores to the risk-based pricing notices. Specifically, the risk-based pricing notice include an explanation that the consumer does not have a single credit score, and that the credit score may vary with the consumer reporting agency and a particular credit product for which the consumer applied. Most consumers need this information to help them understand why they are receiving a particular score that may not be the same as a FICO score. 4. All the comments must be received by 04/14/10 and comments on he Paperwork Reduction Act analysis set forth in Section III.A. of this Federal Register notice must be received on or before May 16, 2011. 5. a. 1.

...Assignment CH10, pg.262, Q 1,4,6,11,18 1. Warehouses emphasize the storage of products, and their primary purpose is to maximize the usage of available storage space. Distribution centers emphasize the rapid movement of products through a facility, and they attempt to maximize the throughput. 4. Cross-docking is a process where a product is received in a facility, occasionally married with product going to the same destination, then shipped at the earliest opportunity, without going into long-term storage. This could affect warehousing design as cross-docking is more desirable by allowing more receiving and outgoing delivery doors, or a bigger floor space to handle more product movements. 6. The advantages of private warehousing are: cost is spread over more units of inventory, more control over storage needs, control over product placement within the facility, and access to product whenever the company needs. A few disadvantages are: initial cost is very high, fluctuating demand means loss of productive space, high interest rates cause more cost for financing, and a reduction in the company’s flexibility in relation to their external environment. 11. The trade-off between order-picking versus stock-replenishing is: keeping both teams working on the same floor at the same time will save on managerial personnel being needed, it will also cause congestion. 18. To start with, hazardous materials means that enhanced security focusing on people, facilities, and processes......

The agency provides accurate and useful information to customers granting immigration and citizenship benefits. Proposed changes: USCIS Proposes Process Change for Certain Waivers of Inadmissibility. I am a business owner in Daly City, California and this interests me and will impact my potential immigrant employees with the new USCIS regulation. This will affect my employees emotional and financial stability due to family separation. 2.  The change will reduce the time US citizens separated from their immediate relatives to include spouse, children and parents. If the relative can prove that being separated from their US citizen relative would cause extreme hardship, applying for a provisional waiver of the unlawful presence ground of inadmissibility while in the United States reducing the time separated from their relative. 3. My comment is that this provisional waiver would be very beneficial to the US citizen relative emotionally and financially. Most families live with dual income status and spouse support with childcare and other day to day functions and work at the same time. Therefore, shorter family separation lessens the burden of the US citizen’s hardship. 4. Comment period from April 2,2012 to June 1,2012. 5. a. Once you have submitted......
