Wounded Warrior Project suing others over name, forcing them to change names

The outfit seems to think it has a copyright on the notion of helping wounded warriors.

The outfit seems to think it has a copyright on the notion of helping wounded warriors. “The Wounded Warrior Project has a history of legal attacks against those they perceive to be infringing on their brand,” reports the Daily Beast.

Some other interesting facts in the article: Wounded Warrior has annual revenue of close to $235 million. And it pays its director $375,000. And Wounded Warrior seems to have a very mixed reputation with veterans’ groups, and with those who grade charities.

I wonder what percentage of their donations go to litigation. Anyone know? Something to think about before signing that check.

In other veterans’ news, it turns out there may be a link between PTS and sleep apnea. I am not surprised.
