Another trademark war in Princeton?

Princeton University is going after the $539 billion "Princeton Portfolio Research & Management" fund because of confusion over the name "Princeton." Princeton's endowment is termed the Princeton University Investment Company.

There is an allegation that Robert Doll (related to the fund) said that the name "Princeton" "had positive connotations given the prestige of the university."

The article also alluded to the previous controversy over the name College of New Jersey. What is now Princeton was called The College of New Jersey from 1746 to 1896.

On a more upbeat New Jersey note, information on the Duke Estate on Route 206 is available at
