Asked in Law & Legal Issues, Candy Bars
Why did the inventor of the Baby Ruth candy bar sue Ruth when he made his own candy bar if the Baby Ruth candy bar wasn't actually named after the ball player?
The Curtiss Candy Company sued because of the way trademark law is written and enforced. Trademarks, unlike copyrights MUST be defended or they risk losing control of the mark through a process called "dilution". That is the reason aspiring writers are advised to use the generic term "tissue"; rather than "Kleenex®" In this case "Babe Ruth" was judged to be close enough to "Baby Ruth" as to cause confusion in the minds of the public as to the origin of either product. The Baby Ruth is named after the daughter of a US president. When her father was in office she was very popular and they named the Baby Ruth candy bar after her.

Was the Baby Ruth candy bar named after Baby Ruth or George Herman Babe Ruth or both?
The name was changed to Baby Ruth to avoid copyright problems ( In Pinstripes) The popular idea was the candy bar was named in honor of the Ball player- George Herman ( Babe) Ruth. Ruth was easily the most popular and recognizable Ball Player of the period so all falls in. Ruth was involved in advertising stunts- as one might guess I do not know if he personally promoted the chocolate bar. Decades later there was a short-lived (Reggie) candy bar named in honor of Reggie Jackson. Baby Ruth Candy survives, Reggies do not.
