School Trademarks

There seems to be a great number of ESL schools around Vancouver that have appropriated the names of famous institutions. There's Haarvard College, Yale and Columbia English schools. I spotted this ad the other day at my local SkyTrain station.


I'm sure that they do this in cities around the world. I'll bet it's pretty impressive when you return to Korea, China or Japan and tell everyone that studied hospitality at Eton and then did your English language training at Haarvard.

I'm curious what the trademark law is on this one.
