Headnote of the Week

The label "mayo 7," as applied to an imitation, low calorie mayonnaise, would not create likelihood of confusion with the Mayo Clinic, Mayo Foundation or the Mayo Brothers, either by suggesting the Clinic as the source of the mayonnaise or by suggesting approval of the low calorie product by the Clinic, particularly in light of fact that "mayo" is a recognized slang expression for "mayonnaise."  Frederick Gash, Inc. v. Mayo Clinic, 461 F.2d 1395 (C.C.P.A. 1972)
