One is from a blog called The Economist’s Cookbook.  The other is from SanctePater.

Now, would Coca Cola and American Express have any cause to sue for some kind of trade mark infringement?

Case law says the negative.  Parody is now considered fair use.  And parody is also a defense against libel.  Hoo-Hah!

  1. Yes. We follow the international treaties on intellectual property, and implied in them is the fair use doctrine. As to libel, the SC has adopted NY Times v Sullivan, which effectively gives a color of good faith of freedom of expression to parody. These two doctrines help to protect bloggers from unnecessary litigation.
