Have A Family Feast Tonight... And It Doesn't Have To Be From KFC
from the bad-trademark,-bad dept
Jimmy alerts us to yet another story of trademark law gone bad. Fast food chicken joint KFC apparently was able to get a trademark on "Family Feast" and then threatened a small pizzeria in Scotland that had been using the phrase "Family Feast" since 1992. After getting the threat letter from KFC, the pizzeria responded with a straightforward letter to KFC, saying:
"we refuse to be bullied by a global conglomerate such as yourselves".And... amazingly, it worked. KFC backed down and told the pizza place that it will take no further action. So, everyone, go out and have a family feast tonight from someone other than KFC.
