Does JCP have the right to co-opt Make The Road's name? Seems a bit . . off . . to me.
It does a bit...
Is it brand protection or is it squatting on someone else's brand?
Hard to call.
If I was JCP, I think I'd take the view that I'd rather own these than let the other side get their hands on them.
So still seems like a sensible move to me. They may also be in possession of some intelligence that we don't know about. Pre-emptive moves are frequently based on intelligence of some kind.
