    That is awesome, But rather than the usual corporate bully pulpit, no less invite to the Bud Super bowl box..

    Having been the recipient of a "cease and desist" letter - from Porsche no less - I like this one much better...

    Yeah I thought that was cool, offering the seats for the super bowl.

    Marketing is jubilant at both companies. Ugh.

    They got the cease and desist to go viral and it makes the huge company seem like they have a silly sense of humor.

    I'm smiling. Those clever Bud people.

    Well played, indeed. Thanks for posting. I was about to add their little marketing phrase, but then decided it wasn't my turn for being a corporate stooge.

    The English folk song, Lavender Blue, dates back to the 17th century. I think Budweiser would have a tough day in court if it actually went that far.

    Lavender's blue, dilly dilly, lavender's green,
    When I am king, dilly dilly, you shall be queen:
    Who told you so, dilly dilly, who told you so?
    'Twas mine own heart, dilly dilly, that told me so.

    The expression 'dilly dilly' was probably around long before that.

    US copyright here. I know they export and do not know how it would go abroad legally.

    Similar thing going on here with the Portland Stag and a small brewery. The city of
    Portland should have done a copyright first, or been more proactive when the small brewer did it a lot sooner...

    But who did the first copyright in a particular jurisdiction?

    FMIC's cease and desist wasn't nearly as charming but i did frame it anyway.

    OK, we don't believe it exists without you posting a pic of it you realize. :D

    Too bad it doesn't actually improve the product.

    I bet ABs profit margin is higher though...

    Sorry Robt, I would if i could, but it's way in deep storage somewhere.
    It really isn't anything more than a form letter but i take it as a badge of courage that I ruffled their feathers.

    I don't understand what "dilly,dilly" has to do with Budweiser?
