The RETTOCAMME Craft store on Etsy received legal notice from the representative of a major beer company this week:
"__________ has been engaged by ________ to help control the use of its marks. You are receiving this letter because ___________ has received information that you are advertising and/or selling products bearing one or more of the __________ marks, or confusingly similar derivations thereof. We understand that the inclusion of the __________ marks on your products may have been an oversight. However, on behalf of _________, __________ must demand that you discontinue your advertisement and sale of these products."
Hopefully I have not offended anyone else in this manner. (I still have half a kitchen full of beer caps that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill!)
As a graphic designer I have a great appreciation for the effort that goes into creating an effective logo and did not intend to insult anyone's brand. I enjoy giving these images another life especially since they are usually purchased by an avid fan of the beer in question. -Emma
