Picture Of The Day: They Trademarked What?

wiffle ball trademarked yellow

Are you kidding me?  How can one possibly trademark a color?  So does this mean that every time I want to use the color yellow, I can only do so with the permission of Wiffle Ball, Inc.?

This has to be the most absurd case of trademarking ever!  All these guys did was make a plastic hollow bat, paint it yellow, and suddenly they think they can take over all the rights to a single color.  Well how about if I decide to go with a canary yellow, or a fluorescent yellow?  Do they own the rights to those yellows, along with every other shade of yellow as well?

If so, that could spell trouble for the Nashville Predators, Oregon Ducks, and any other sports club whose hideous jerseys contain some form of the now trademarked color.  And trust me, there are a lot of them.
