A small brewery in Missouri that named one of its brews the "Frappicino" received a cease and desist letter from Starbucks.
The letter, which was sent by an attorney for the Seattle-based company, stated that Starbucks "is the owner of a number of world-famous trademarks, including the well-known FRAPPUCCINO trademark." And it also pointed out that the words are "phonetically identical" and that brewery's use of Frappicino "is likely to cause confusion, mistake."
