Right, but - let's say that Burger King acquired McDonald's fryers,
oil, fries, seasonings, etc - all from legitimate suppliers, lets say
from the same suppliers that provide McDonald's with their supplies.
Even though the fries would be exactly the same as McDonald's fries,
they can not call them McDonald's fries.

On the Boston Marathon, you can not create athletic gear with the
Boston Marathon logo and sell it.  Likewise you can not use the Red
Hat logos to sell things without a trademark license.

Cheers,

Matt
