    This is both funny and sad, more stupid than anything else

    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    Excellent news that these Solingen guys do take this very seriously.

    Well, not quite, an American company would sue for $450 Million or so...

    The saddest part, imo, is they are just part of a subculture that thinks that this kind of stuff is acceptable. You got to wonder why for some people the thought that this might not be right doesn't kick in. I just started reading one of Bourdain's later books, Medium Raw, where he spends most of the first chapter yelling about Emeril and Rachael and the like for their no talent BS - and apparently it goes deeper than just selling out to the forces of greed to downright lying...
    Everywhere you go, there you are.

    "The German Chamber of Industry and Commerce Wuppertal-Solingen-Remscheid, a trade association that holds the rights to the world-famous Solingen knife collection, has sued Stewart and her company Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Lagasse and HSN for trademark infringement for “up to $2,000,000 for EACH time the knives were mentioned" on HSN, according to Forbes."

    I'm not a Lagasse fan, but my understanding is Martha Stewart bought him out, anything/everything with his name on it, after hurricane Katrina.

    Someone sent me a subscription to Martha Stewart's magazine (if I find out who, I'm going to put a pox on them.) I feel sorry for the women who fall for her schtick--the lifestyle she promotes just isn't possible for people without a huge staff to handle the "real" work around the house.

    We mail ordered one of her non-stick skillet once since it was on sale for cheap and we needed a new one. It wasn't even worth using--it went right back.
    Now is not the time to bother me. And it's always now. Wiley Miller
