BTIES: NPB comes down on Canned Unicorn
Since April 1, thinkgeek has had unicorn meat—"The New White Meat!"—for sale at their site. The National Pork Board took legal exception to the adaptation of their slogan for the promotion of a competing product and hit thinkgeek with a cease and desist.
I wonder if the Pork Board's legal representation specializes in faerie and related matters...? Property disputes with Smurfs and Gnomes? Paternity suits with Olympians? How many firms can pull a "unicorn" file from their records?
Keep on keepin on~
