Indie Rock and Trademark Law

This is cool. The Death Cab/Dntel side project The Postal Service has settled its trademark dispute with the United States Postal Service. Apparently, the feds sent Sub Pop a cease and desist letter explaining that they had a federal trademark on the name "Postal Service". Sub Pop managed to convince the feds that, rather than taking away their name, they should let them do some cross promotion. So, the emo-electronica band - who never play live - are going to do a show for postal service executives. Also, they are going to sell albums at post offices and their music will appear on US Postal Service ads.
