Fender loses trademark case

This is interesting, I was unaware this case was ongoing. Fender has lost its claim that the 2D shapes of its guitars are a trademark.

So it is. I still didn't know about it and I assume everyone else here did. Oh, well. I am not that aware of electric guitar news and issues.

Sorry about that. I guess I could delete the post. EDIT: Nope, I can't delete it. Sigh.
