Question of the Day
Workers in abortion clinic probe removed
HARRISBURG | Gov. Tom Corbett said he’s removing a number of state employees as a result of an investigation into the operation of a Philadelphia abortion clinic where a doctor is accused of performing illegal abortions that resulted in the deaths of a patient and viable infants.
He said that in some cases he’s accepted resignations. Others have been dismissed outright. Some are suspended while his aides investigate.
A grand jury that investigated the clinic had scathing criticism for Pennsylvania’s state health and medical regulators for allowing the conditions at the clinic to exist unchecked for years.
PAWTUCKET | A British court said Play-Doh by any other name is a trademark infringement — even if it’s spelled differently.
The United Kingdom High Court on Friday found that a German toy company, 123 Nahrmittel, had infringed the trademark of Hasbro Inc.’s iconic Play-Doh because it used the phrase “play dough” on its Yummy Dough product. Yummy Dough’s box describes it as “the edible play dough.”
Hasbro sued the company and its British supplier last year.
123 Nahrmittel said on its website that it is disappointed by the decision and it is considering its options, including a possible appeal in the United Kingdom or elsewhere in Europe.
A spokesman for Hasbro says the Pawtucket, R.I.-based company actively enforces its intellectual property rights around the world.
