Dumb PR move of the day: Suing the Red Cross for using a red cross

Kudos to my former employer for getting this one:

J&J, one of the largest drug makers in the world has sued the Red Cross over its use of one of the most famous symbols in the world – the red cross.

I don’t see ANY upside to Johnson & Johnson for this one. Even if they win the court case, they lose.
