Bakery Claims Trademark On Smiley Face Cookies; Sues Competing Cookie Firm
from the where's-that-cookie-diet? dept
Mark Montgomery alerts us to yet another case of trademark law being taken to ridiculous ends. Apparently a restaurant/bakery is claiming a trademark on putting a smiley face on a cookie and is suing a cookie store for selling similar cookies:
A key ingredient of Eat'n Park's case is the lawsuit's Exhibit A, which shows a circle with two round eyes, a dot for a nose and a perky smile.Time to start selling cookies with sad faces, and saying it's all Eat'n Park's fault that the cookies are so sad.
