Submission + - Frito Lay sues Derby Dames in Trademarkdispute. (77square.com)

fishdan writes: "You think it's tough when your hobby involves you getting blindsided by a leggy blond while on the track? Imagine if the same hobby got you blind sided by a multinational! Frito-Lay, a company previously thought of favorably by 5 out of 5 code monkeys, recently filed a suit of opposition against Coleen Bell, a Madison WI native and former Mad Rollin' Dolls roller derby player. Frito-Lay claims that Bell's roller derby name, Crackerjack, is too similar to the name of their famous caramel popcorn and nut snack.

Which seems ironic, when in their own ads they say "What do you call a kid, who can skate like that? You call that kid a Cracker Jack."

Bell has posted a video that succinctly makes her point."

If it happens once, it's a bug. If it happens twice, it's a feature. If it happens more than twice, it's a design philosophy.
