Those protections restrict, during the protection period of a major event, a person's ability to make a representation (such as in an advertisement) suggesting that there is an association between the major event and goods or services, a brand of goods or services, or a person who provides goods or services. There is a presumption that a representation that includes a major event emblem or major event words suggests such an association.
