Oprah Winfrey wins ‘Own Your Power’ trademark suit

Andrei Mincov's commentary on the original article

That's sometimes the danger of trademarking taglines the mimic regular phrases: you may get them trademarked but it may be difficult to enforce them against others—especially if they have very deep pockets.
