TIME MAGAZINE FILES SUIT AGAINST BUSH/QUAYLE 92' FOR INFRINGEMENT OF COPYRIGHT, TRADEMARK AND OTHER LAWS

 TIME MAGAZINE FILES SUIT AGAINST BUSH/QUAYLE 92' FOR INFRINGEMENT
 OF COPYRIGHT, TRADEMARK AND OTHER LAWS
 NEW YORK, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- TIME Magazine is filing suit against the Bush/Quayle 92' campaign for infringement of copyright, trademark and other laws, charging that the campaign is making unauthorized use of TIME's April 20, 1992 cover "Why Voters Don't Trust Clinton" in a television commercial.
 After the Bush/Quayle advertisement first aired Sunday, Oct. 11, lawyers for Time Inc., TIME's parent company, sent a letter to the campaign insisting that they "immediately cease and desist from any further broadcast, telecast or other use of the commercial." The magazine protested that "the implicit suggestion of the commercial that TIME endorses its contents is extremely damaging to TIME's reputation and makes this infringement of Time's rights all the more serious."
 A lawyer for the Bush/Quayle campaign responding to TIME's demand refused to pull the advertisement. As a result, lawyers for Time Inc. are filing suit in Federal District Court in Washington, D.C. Henry Muller, the magazine's managing editor, points out, "This is a serious distortion of our journalism. From time to time we've done critical covers on all three candidates, and we object to the implication that we are taking sides."
