USOC sues company for using trademark
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)-The U.S. Olympic
Committee is suing a Kansas City company for min-
ting an Olympic boycott medal that allegedly used
the committee's trademarks without permission.
The suit filed in U.S. District Court Monday said the
medal minted by the Gold Standard Corp. used the
word "Olympic" and "representations intended to
simulate the appearance of the Olympic em-
blems"-a torch aRod five interlocking rings-without
the USOC's permission.
CONRAD BRAUN, Gold Standard's president who
flew to the Soviet Union last month to present the
medal to Soviet dissident Andrei Sakharov, said he
was shocked at the committee's action.

gesture by minting the medal and trying to present
Braun said he was not able to meet Sakharov on his"
trip but presented the medal to an intermediary who
was to try to present it to Sakharov. The dissident
scientist has been exiled from Moscow to Gorki.
"We did research before marketing this medal to
make sure we weren't infringing. And we aren't,"
said Braun. "The U.S. Olympic Committee doesn't
have a monopoly on America's Olympic boycott.
We did that as a nation."
