CBS better be careful. Many times, those in the broadcast industry that own Trademarks find out that during the course of a challenge or litigation, that the opposing party or even a third party can prove "first usage", which predates the current trademark application and in most cases it becomes the challenged party or third party that in turn asks for damages.

Oh, Wait just a minute. I Think you made a mistake, I own the word "Wather". You cannot use that word without my consent. I will have my Attorney, Morris Bart, who happens to be the largest personal injury attorney here on the coast. We will be in contact.

"Give us 22 minutes and we'll give you the world" was actually originated by NYC's WINS then a Westinghouse Station in the 1970s. It referred to their "news wheel" which consisted of three 22 minutes cycles. It worked well, and WCBS, its All-News competition would love to have been able to kill it.

I believe I was the first ever to use the word "weather." I'd appreciate it if every time the rest of you used it, you'd put a $5 bill in an envelope and forward it to me before my lawyers have to hit you with a "storm front," so to speak (I also invented "so to speak," but that's become a cliche, so I only charge $2 for saying that).

Who knew that CBS owned the rights to "Traffic & Wather Together" We have been using that phrase for many years, as have hundreds of other stations. I guess their lawyers are going to be very busy, cashing their retainer checks!!
