Doktor Doktor BS: KFC Steal the dictionary (88* d) BS: KFC Steal the dictionary 10 May 07


The Tan Hill Inn, the highest pub in England, has been told by Kentucky* Fried Chicken to remove the words "family feast" from its menu.

Silly spat but raises an interesting point - if I write the "Family Feast" song, will they sue? If I sing "Old McDonald's Farm" and accidentally miss the "A" am I bound for the courts?

Have the Trademark & Copyright laws become an assault on freedom? Can the Money Men steal our language because they're the ones with the money?

I think a protest song is required here - any volunteers?

PS is it true that they call themselves KFC now because the Commonwealth of Kentucky trademarked the "K" word ?
