PACKMAN v. CHICAGO TRIBUNE CO., 01-1016
A newspaper's reproduction of its headline, along with its masthead, on souvenir products is not a trademark use because the masthead identifies the newspaper as the source of the products and identifies the phrase as a newspaper headline reporting on an event, and not as a trademark.
