Does the sandwich shop around the corner get to name something Big Mac ? Of course not. And you can't steal Starbucks stuff either. I hate SBucks but this is obvious.


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.
