For Hermes to contend in court that it now owns the 'St. Malachi' name because it organized runs for the church ... is unjust, and legally and factually incorrect. It also should raise concerns for other charities and businesses that use (or have used) Hermes as a run organizer, and for the public who now must question whether Hermes' use of charity names is an accurate indicator that a specific charity or cause actually benefits from and endorses a particular run.Good point. Whatever minor windfall Hermes hopes to gain by this daft and mean-spirited suit will no doubt be overshadowed by bad press. Next time you sign up for a Hermes run, or the Cleveland Corporate Challenge, think twice. Remember that Hermes is the company that bullied an inner-city parish that was just trying to put together a successful fundraiser.
