What People Do with Signs and Symbols

From Glimpse: September 1986
US Fashion Designer Ralph Lauren brought legal action for infringing on "his" corporate symbol against an organization that used a similar insignia: the figure of a man on a horse swinging a mallet. The object of his suit? The US Polo Association, founded in 1900.

Glimpse 2001 Update:Lauren not only won that suit, but more than 15 years later, he continues his pursuit of those who would profit from his well-known logo and product line.
Another Ralph Lauren lawsuit against the US Polo Association, and Another Win
