Actual Notice and Imputed Knowledge


My son snapped this photo during a recent family trip to Washington, D.C. It almost has become a hobby for him to capture people in the act of ignoring a sign's specific request or doing exactly what a sign purports to forbid. While some retreated from the water in the World War II Memorial when they saw a camera pointed in their direction, it appears, others just can't help themselves, despite having actual knowledge of the opposite instruction (Please see article below for picture.)

In any event, it got me thinking about notice and the difference between and consequences of actual notice and constructive notice in trademark disputes.

Please see full article below for more information.
