IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT:

c. Manufacturing, transporting, promoting, importing, advertising, publicizing, distributing, offering for sale, or selling any goods bearing the Twilight Marks or any other mark, name, symbol, or logo that is a copy or colorable imitation of, incorporates, or is confusingly similar to the Twilight Marks; this paragraph 1.c., however, shall not preclude defendant from displaying advertisements bearing the Twilight Marks when the prospective advertiser is licensed to use such mark;
