THIS BULLLYING IS ABSURD. SOMEONE POUR A BOTTLE OF MAPLE SYRUP ON THE WAFFLE HOUSE
Keeping an eye on trademark law used to require a sense of humor. Watching fast food companies, cosmetics barons, and aging teen idols shape American law was, at times, awkward, but usually entertaining. Not exactly getting prisoners off death row. But intellectually interesting.
But trademark law has changed. The stakes are as low as ever.
And so it is with W. H. Capital, LLC.(and their lawyers).
What's the connection between restaurants and rap music? There is none. These folks have absolutely no business hassling this guy. And their lawyers have absolutely no business helping them.
But hassle him they did. He caved. He changed the name of the WAFFLE HOUSE song. Even though they did not have a legal leg to stand on.
I sure hope that the text of the cease and desist letter winds up on the Internet. It's hard to imagine a better candidate for a shaming campaign.
