Candidate Nader May Use ‘Priceless’ in Anti-Corruption Ads MasterCard lost its bid to stop presidential candidate and consumer activist Ralph Nader from adapting the company’s “priceless” advertising campaign to his own ads targeting corruption in Washington. Southern District Judge George B. Daniels granted summary judgment for Mr. Nader, saying the ads he ran in his bid for the White House in 2000 were “political, not commercial, in nature” and unlikely to deceive consumers. The Nader ads went through an ascending list of horrors on the cost of fund raising and promises to special interest groups before closing with the line “finding out the truth: priceless. There are some things that money can’t buy.” The decision in MasterCard International inc. v. Nader 2000 Primary Committee, Inc., 00 Civ. 6068 will be published Thursday. � Mark Hamblett Mintz Levin Bolsters New York IP Practice Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo has added three partners to its New York intellectual property practice.
