Chick-fil-A is suing a T-shirt artist:
A Vermont folk artist attempting to expand his home t-shirt business built around phrase "eat more kale," finds himself up against a formidable, and some would say, delicious, opponent: Chick-fil-A.
Chick-fil-A, whose own trademarked slogan "eat mor chikin," has tried to shut down Bo Muller-Moore's hand silkscreen operation claiming his t-shirts cause brand confusion amongst customers. [...]However, Muller-Moore, 38, says he's been using the phrase since 2000 and is ready to fight on against the nation's second-largest chicken franchise.
"Our plan is to not back down. This feels like David versus Goliath. I know what it's like to protect what's yours in business," he said.
So he has enlisted the help of Montpelier lawyer Daniel Richardson and the intellectual property clinic at the University of New Hampshire School of Law's Intellectual Property and Transaction Clinic.
"Bo's is a very different statement. It's more of a philosophical statement about local agriculture and community-supported farmers markets," said Daniel Richardson of the New Hampshire School of Law's Intellectual Property and Transaction Clinic, who is representing Muller-Moore. "At the end of the day, I don't think anyone will step forward and say they bought an 'eat more kale' shirt thinking it was a Chick-fil-A product."
About what I'd expect from these bullies.
