Woo! Reservation confirmed!

Just an FYI, for those looking for a place is that isn't more than $100 a night, http://www.airbnb.com is fantastic. I just booked a room for $83 a night that's maybe 10 blocks from the Rogue and Peasant. Sweet!

Hey Spud, are you going to do a poster this year?

I have a cool idea for the design if you want me to email it to you. I think it would be pretty easy to pull off too.

Thanks to Jack for the concept...

So that seems like a t-shirt. Still gotta make it into a poster...

Cute. Also unfortunately likely to get a nastygram from Starbucks' lawyers. But fuck 'em.

We will be glad to cease and desist. After the show is over.

They don't play that way:
Rather than sending a cease-and-desist letter, Starbucks filed a motion for a restraining order that required Dwyer to surrender all items bearing the parody logo.

Mind you - that case involved a logo which was deemed to have "tarnished" the trademark, whereas that above is more just a harmless and benign geographic/cultural reference.

Did you dig up any other examples of lawsuits in your research?
There are lots of parodies out there. Do they take this approach often?

I'm sorry - you only get the first Google response for free. Further research will attract my usual commercial rates (...bottle of rum - at least 3/4 full, in a brown paper bag behind the dumpster. I'll leave a receipt)

Love it! The green circle was around long before Starbucks was.

It doesn't matter if they have a leg to stand on - they have expensive lawyers and relatively infinite money.

The Dwyer case was the one I specifically had in mind but it's hardly isolated:

http://www.vegastrademarkattorney.com/2 ... offee.html (this one specifically over the green circle - there's less in common with this one than the SF logo)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starbucks ... ringements - in particular the Rat City Rollergirls, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rat_City_Rollergirls - their logo just has the circle and doesn't even have green in it.

I'm not saying not to use that logo of course - I'm just saying to be aware that Starbucks has a history of not taking kindly to this stuff, even if it has nothing to do with coffee and even if the only design element in common is a circle.

So what if Starbucks wants a fight? This is Song Fight!

It's funny, I wouldn't think starbucks would have a problem, but I wonder about Red Hook.

I tend to agree, Glennny. After all, Starbucks ditched the green circle a year ago March. I wonder if I could talk Red Hook into a sponsorship. I will ask around.

Noah, thanks so much for the Airbnb tip! That is indeed a great resource. Found a flat in Freemont. I will drive up after work on Friday, which will put me in Seattle circa... um...8 or 9? I'll keep checking back to learn where I will find you all on that day once the location gets upgraded from TBA to A.

That's awesome you're coming, Em!

For anyone else still looking, we found a house via VRBO that has worked out, such as:

Thanks, Roy! It is a little bit stupid that I've never made it out to one of these previously. Not that I ever Songfight. But you know.

I second the greatness of VRBO -- I've found many great spots using their site.

Spud, I have a very important and completely unrelated question. Is it true that Deluxe Junk is no more? :(
