  • No more pictures of coffee!!!

    Someone else may have noticed this: http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2007/08/09/2001186.htm

    Nestle are trying to copyright pictures of coffee- latte artists beware! Though, I guess if it went to court ... "Your honour, I promise, my picture is of good coffee, not stale rubbish!"

    Apparently they also own the word "decaf".

    Whats the world coming to... *sigh*

      It used to be said - "Only in America"

      That is crazy that it even reached the point where the office accepted the submission.

      Whats next - copyright the aroma?

        So Nestle claims that most/many people associate the picture/s with their products.....
        really, didnt ask me....

        OK where are our legal experts who can advise how we may make use of the current three month period where it can be challenged.

          Whod want to replicate the aroma of nescafe? :P

          In the same article it talks about the fight over the colour purple between Cadbury and Darrell Lea. Ridiculous.

          Im going to copyright the letter E and the number 4!

            Perhaps its time to look at registering the CS logo before some money grubbing corporation does so with a similar image and challenges it.

              I think before we jump to conclusions we need to see what is actually being used.....

                  I thought Nescafe was called "No es Cafe" in South America..
