EWTN.com - Catholics for a free choice: "Catholics for a free choice
Question from Sharon on 10/9/2008:
Is there any recourse available to the Catholic Church for 'Catholics for a Free Choice' using the word Catholics when the group is not sanctioned by the Catholic Church? It seems, if a company were to use a registered trademark without permission, there could be a law suit. Can the Catholic Church stand up against this misuse?
Answer by Judie Brown on 10/10/2008:
The only way that something substantive could be done about Catholics for a Free Choice and their use of the word 'Catholic' would be for the Bishops of the United States to make a concerted effort to destroy the credibility of the group and repeatedly focus on the fact that they are not Catholic."
