Friend Kurt Hartman of The Tire Pile blog offered his take on Bridgestone Americas’ trademark infringement suit against Texas’ Commerce Max Inc., which allegedly sells "Amberstone" brand medium and OTR tires.

Kurt is the best blogger in the industry, and makes some interesting points about why Bridgestone sued, what it is trying to accomplish, and why protecting trade names and marks is difficult today.
