Catholics for a free choice
Question from Sharon on 10/9/2008:

Is there any recourse available to the Catholic Church for "Catholics for a Free Choice" using the word Catholics when the group is not sanctioned by the Catholic Church? It seems, if a company were to use a registered trademark without permission, there could be a law suit. Can the Catholic Church stand up against this misuse?

Answer by Judie Brown on 10/10/2008:

Dear Sharon

The only way that something substantive could be done about Catholics for a Free Choice and their use of the word "Catholic" would be for the Bishops of the United States to make a concerted effort to destroy the credibility of the group and repeatedly focus on the fact that they are not Catholic.
