The Pinkertons VS Rockstar Games
Going off my recent review it appears the real life Pinkertons aren't too happy about there portrayal in Red Dead and have gone after Rockstar in a lawsuit; its a shame afterall they must have missed out on Bioshock infinite, a game where the main protagonist is a former pinkerton who isn't afraid to get his hands dirty they appear to be worried about the use of there name in RDR2 because its "likely to cause confusion" with their Pinkerton trademark and detective badge and said it was prepared to take legal action if a license agreement was not reached"
But like Booker DeWitt Rockstar isn't one to take this lightly and has slammed back at them by adding in addition to an injunction of the lawsuit; "Put simply, Defendants cannot use trademark law to own the past and prevent creators from including historical references to Pinkerton agents in depictions of the American West," Overall I think our folks at Rockstar have the situation in the bag it just comes to show that not everyone understands the concept of Fair use.
