    "Tough Ain't Enough"

    Does anyone know if the phrase has been coined or trademarked? I know I heard it before it appeared in the movie, but some cursory research hasn't turned up anything.

    I'm thinking I might be asked to write an ad campaign soon the future and I'm thinking ahead in case I get it. I want to make sure the phrase falls under fair use.

    ...not sure, but I believe Ellen Degeres has that tattooed on her piss flaps, but under the copyright fair use clause, things should be a'ight.

      The ambiguous use of the food icon makes that post all the more creepy.

          You could conceivably contact a lawyer who has experiences in trademarks and copyrights and find out for sure.

          Or, you can take the most accurate answer possible from me:







          maybe

              To bring this to a close, I found what I was looking for.

              I also realize I deserved all the sarcasm. I understand most attempts to copyright the english language can easily be torn to pieces in court. I just so happen to be forced to be extra anal retentive about intellectual rights when doing something within the university such as adds for one of its events.

              I also understand the potential irony in having a blatent proof reading error in a post about a writing project.

                It's not trademarked as far as I can tell. You can trademark words BTW. It is for business purposes, it protects your "trust the Midas touch" because "you're in good hands" which are "finger lickin' good" and "stay crunchy even in milk" (okay that one's not trademarked either):happy6:

                    Ask snopes. He either knows everything or makes it up and it sounds really good.

                      Is there a need to copywrite it?

                        Copyright? Well he could copyright his brochure if he wanted.

                        Trademark is the issue though because he wants to use it as a tag line, a gimmick... he wants to make it a household phrase that's associated with him for business purposes.

                        Please ignore his confusion of issues.
