          Professor Ben Depoorter on BART's Aggressive Trademark Tactics

          "As a manager, I'd be applauding someone willing to make and buy a shirt with a BART ticket on it," says Ben Depoorter, a professor at UC Hastings (and a daily BART commuter from Daly City to Civic Center).

          "I'm surprised there's a market for this, with everything that's been going on recently. ... [But] BART has bought into the very aggressive culture of trademark law." This, Depoorter notes, "is within BART's prerogative."
