HaidaBucks, a small restaurant/cafe in a tiny village on a remote island in NW British Columbia, is being sued by Starbucks for trademark infringement. After an exchange of letters (Starbucks saying, "Change your name!" and HaidaBucks saying, "Never!") Starbucks, in an effort to stem the tide of negative publicity, prematurely sent a letter of congratulations to HaidaBucks on changing their logo, name and signage. T-shirts and mugs now available!
