Counterfeit Starbucks


I’m having a lot of trouble getting over my various health problems and yesterday I was seriously thinking about giving up posting altogether. Then I heard from p2pnet regular Vox Leo with a tale of horror which’ll shake you to your very core!

Someone has  had the temerity to mock Starbucks!

Say it ain’t so!

But it’s true!

A ‘Dumb Starbucks’ opened briefly in Los Angeles and was giving away free coffee. But was is the operative word.

The owners, whoever they may be, apparently thought they’d get away with it by trying to claim it’s a parody and therefore immune from copyright/trademark issues.

A spokeswoman is quoted as saying,

“Although we are a fully functioning coffee shop, for legal reasons Dumb Starbucks needs to be categorized as a work of parody art,”

Starbucks is the largest coffee bar in the world with tentacles everywhere.

Unbeatable marketing,  and nothing else, has made it what it is today

But the actual coffee ….?
