Some Fries With Your Stupid, Conde Nast?

Sweet, sweet relief

Vogue magazine threatens to sue Cornish village pub of the same name

One of the biggest fashion magazines in the world is threatening to sue a pub in a tiny Cornish hamlet because they share the same name – and it claims this could confuse its readers. Condé Nast, the owner of Vogue magazine, has sent a ‘cease and desist’ letter to the Star Inn at Vogue, a hamlet that blends into St Day, near Redruth, to stop using the name ‘Vogue’ as it is their name – even though the pub is more than 200 years old and the village is older still.

The whole story is a treat and the barkeep is a national treasure.

There will always be a Britain.

    I thought that is why businesses use misspellings, as acknowledged words were not patentable.

    I read that Condé Nast dropped the matter when someone pointed out how silly it was.

    Why were they suing the Star Inn? Vogue is the name of the town/village.

    And why won’t they put Melania on the cover? She’s so classy and elegant.
