Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee Claim Shot Down
The eatery wanted to trademark the phrase “Best Coffee in America.” The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office said no. Do you agree with Dunkin’ or is there better coffee to be had right here in St. Pete?
Drive around St. Pete and it is evident there are plenty of places to get a hot cup of Joe. But who has the best?
“Anyone at all can claim that their coffee is the ‘Best Coffee in America,’ ” trademark attorney Zick Rubin is quoted by the Globe as saying. “No one takes such a claim literally, and no one company can monopolize the phrase.”
