Starbucks Infringement case

STARBUCKS won $500k in a court battle over a bong designed to look like a Starbucks Frappuccino cup. Starbucks does not want anybody to confuse its product with any other that promotes illegitimate matter.

Starbucks’ latest court battle involves an unlikely subject: bongs.

The coffee giant has prevailed in a copyright and trademark infringement lawsuit involving a line of bongs mimicking Starbucks Frappuccino cups. Bearing the name “Dabuccino,” the glass vessels feature a mouthpiece that resembles the company’s signature green straws and a logo that looks just like the Starbucks siren — except in this case, she’s wearing a headdress made of pot leaves.
