Indianapolis Colts and "Red Zone" dispute with Heinz


The Indianpolis Colts NFL football team are in a dispute with Heinz foods (ketchup) over their use of the "Red Zone". Three other NFL teams have been using it with charity drives with Heinz, but the Colts may have a historical claim. Ketchup and football would seem to be different kinds of business under trademark law, but maybe not when there is already an agreement among different industries already.
