Ampersand dispute

Who would have thought the lowly ampersand would have provoked so much ire (and apparently funded the endeavors of several law firms)?

But now one travel agency, Abercrombie & Kent, is suing &Beyond, claiming the use of the ampersand in the latter's name violates trademark.

File this under "get a life."

You're missing the central point here. The first copy editor to register the period, comma or semicolon as a trademark will stand to make a fortune in royalties.

Good jesus. You said it right, Doug: get a friggin' life, people. Anyway, here's to a great 2009 for you and your far flung readers.
