Recently, lawyers for the National Pork Board (NPB) sent ThinkGeek a Cease and Desist letter alleging that ThinkGeek is infringing on NPB’s trademarks when they say, “Unicorn, the new white meat”.
No worries though, ThinkGeek is clearly in parody-land, so their use of the phrase is considered Fair Use. But thanks to ThinkGeek for providing us with the news, and even better, their hilarious handling of the letter and response!
