Has anyone heard about this??? It’s reminiscent of the whole stitch n bitch thing w/ sew fast sew easy…are we sue crazy or what??
Jen from The Lactivist has received a letter from the National Pork Board threatening to sue her for the use of the phrase “The Other White Milk” on her t-shirts. Jen sells these t-shirts online to raise money for the Mothers’ Milk Bank of Ohio. This t-shirt has been removed from her store.
Here’s the really ridiculous part. One of the Pork Board’s concerns is quoted here:
In addition, your use of this slogan also tarnishes the good reputation of the National Pork Board's mark in light of your apparent attempt to promote the use of breastmilk beyond merely for infant consumption, such as with the following slogans on your website in close proximity to the slogan "The Other White Milk." "Dairy Diva," "Nursing, Nature's Own Breast Enhancement," "Eat at Mom's, fast-fresh-from the breast," and "My Milk is the Breast.
