IOC Claims Olympian Lindsey Vonn's Name As Intellectual Property

notasheep Re:Sure they can claim it (399 comments)

Since she's being sponsored I bet the company has a contractual right to use her name. And, unless there's a clause in that contract that allows her to suspend that arrangement then she couldn't give the IOC exclusive use of her name during the term of the sponsor's contract.

I would bet the company just decided it was less risk to wait a week or two to use the name than it was to roll the dice with potential litigation.

Dude, catch up with the times. The 80s and 90s have passed with the 90s posting 1 hijacking of a US flight. (Out of the tens of thousands of flights a year.) So, obviously, it's time to start detaining people based on some behavioral traits that are sure to be kept secret by those doing the watching. (Can't let the terrorists know what we're looking for.)
