A Bad Coffee Shop Name?

A judge has told Sam Buck that she can't call her coffee shop Sambuck's. The judge ruled the name violated the trademark of coffee giant Starbucks.

This is wacky. This leads me to believe that any coffeehouse name that ends in "Bucks" is in for a lawsuit. Have you guys heard anything like this? If you have please, please leave a comment about it. This article got me thinking about cafe names. Not only the fact that you have to be extra careful in choosing the name of your venue, but that I'm very sure there are plenty of cafes with innovative (funny) names.

One of which I saw a while ago is Bread Stuy. This is a cafe located in the Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn, New York. This area is better known as "Bed Stuy".
