On top of that, companies have a legal requirement to enforce their IP rights even if it doesn`t matter, even if the products aren`t the same (e.g. beer instead of coffee). You can lose a trademark if you don`t enforce it.

I agree with Gerry, this one is a no brainer. People can bitch about it but you can`t do what he did. Open a restaurant and try service a Whopper, you`ll get sued so fast you won`t know what happened.

I actually know Jeff. His bar/brew pub is about 3 minutes from my house. Funny how this thing has gotten such recognition.

Until this I didn`t know Frappuccino was a made up word for a product, I thought it was a general coffee term like Cappuccino or Espresso.

I`ve never even been in a Starbucks, but I`ve had their coffee, and I thought it tasted like used transmission fluid.

We had one of those silly arse rows a few years ago about my local kebab shop. It was pointed out that KFC do not offer kebabs, therefore there was no infringement.
