How Jayne's Hat got entangled in Trademark Law

Threatening Those Who Create the Rights:

More important than the trademark implications is the wildly myopic reaction of Fox.  As Pamela Chestek puts it:

Fox had a community most companies would kill for. But rather than embracing and fostering this passionate community, Fox took the short view. In knee-jerk fashion it exercised legal rights of questionable merit, acting autocratically and failing to recognize that it had something infinitely more valuable, the allegiance of a passionate community.
