Hrm ... dissapointing.

SOBA, a gallant bunch of chaps, appreciators of "Beer for all the right reasons", have lost their fight with the intellectual property office, annoyingly. DB, annoyingly, copyrighted the name Radler for one of their beers. Calling your beer Radler, that's fine, but Radler is a style of beer, not a brand. So when someone else puts out a radler, they get hit with a cease and desist order from DB, which is annoying to say the least. Hayden idly suggests a boycott at the end this post, (worth the read, for a fuller explanation of the idiotic malarkey that DB have embarked upon). I would care to suggest it more ... firmly. Don't drink at DB bars, don't buy DB products at the liquor store until they renounce the stupid copyright on the name radler.
