yeah, I read that. I think that is crazy, and is not really a good publicity for Pusser's.

What's the point of doing that ? It's a bar, not a new brand of rum (and even if it was...)

I am surprised this hasn't prompted more discussion here on TC?
Over on Facebook a large number of top bartenders around the world have pulled the product from their shelves in support of PKNY.



Wow, that is great to hear! I guess I was too jaded to expect such a thing to happen, good to hear such international solidarity exists! I mean what frickin' harm is it to Pusser's if the name gets used a little more. It is a very esoteric concept to begin with, and it's not like that bar was making millions from the use of it. But it might seriously harm them to have to change their name now. This type of suing really inhibits the evolution of pop cultures, it sucks.

Gosling's has also registered "dark 'n' stormy"
