Eat Mor Chikin – Not if it tastes like a T-shirt!

Now for the second time, after allegedly abandoning their first claim, Chick-fil-A sent a cease-and-desist letter to Bo Muller-Moore who makes screen printed “Eat More Kale” T-shirts by hand.  Apparently, Chick-fil-A believes that use of the slogan “Eat More Kale” on T-shirts is confusingly similar to their slogan “Eat Mor Chikin” for their restaurants.

Although I think this is legally ridiculous, I don’t think I like to try Chick-fil-A if it tastes like a T-shirt.

In another equally interesting and legally ridiculous claim, the porn company Vivid Entertainment accused Taiwan-based phonemaker, HTC of violating their trademark by marketing their new phone called Vivid.

I guess Vivid Entertainment could consider this to be confusingly similar if they believe the only thing anyone uses a phone for is to look at pornography and call escort services.

I just heard from someone who sold two phone numbers with different area codes using the word lawyers as 1-XXX-LAWYERS.  Now that’s confusingly similar to 1-800-LAWYERS.

Just don’t ask me to eat a T-shirt and I’m going to stick to my Motorola E815 cell phone which isn’t good for watching porn but it never misses a call.
