The New York Stock Exchange now claims that you have to get their
permission (express or implicit) before you use images connected
to the New York Stock Exchange. So if you find a wire photo of the
trading floor and use it to illustrate a story on Wall Street,
you’re violating the NYSE’s trademark because they’ve trademarked
the trading floor itself.
We found this out yesterday when we got a cease and desist letter
from the NYSE based on an article published at TPM back in
Man, talk about bullshit trademark harassment.
