    Jack Daniels != Apple

    This was an extremely classy move by JD.

    The article (link below) has a copy of the letter sent by JD.

    When Patrick Wensink was commissioning the cover for his book, Broken Piano For President, he probably wasn’t expecting a cease-and-desist letter from Jack Daniel’s Properties — the owner of the Jack Daniel’s trademarks.

    Looking at the cover for the book, it’s easy to see why the Jack Daniel’s people might take issue with the design. The typeface isn’t exactly the same, but the border and presentation is a dead-ringer for the classic black label of that sweet, sweet Tennessee whiskey.

    Usually when we write about trademark disputes, one party claims that another party is using its size to “bully” to get its way.

    Not this time.
