I'm impressed that JD was willing to pony up a little dough to help him change the logo.

it would cost the company far less to throw a few bucks the guys way to help him change the cover than it would for them to pay their attorneys to file all the paperwork to force him to change it.“The welfare of humanity is always the alibi of tyrants.” - Albert Camus

Not really, USPTO related hearings are a lot cheaper than a full fledged court hearing, binding, and if a C&D doesn't work, needed to protect marks.

I am super impressed that the company is willing to deal with the issue directly and correctly! instead of being sue happy and being unreasonable they did what a large company is supposed to do, be a real business...not to mention that looks like an actual signature!
