"Cygnet Potato Breeders"?

Maybe we should tie this in with the Swan Lake thread in "Issues"?

One UK company promotion used drawings of famous people without naming them and this was ruled as impervious to a court challenge. On the other hand my memory is that a photo image would have been treated differently.

So Cygnet seem to be at risk to a successful court. Would that make them a lame duck?

But if nothing bad comes of it, it could be a feather in their cap.

Is someone writing this stuff for you or are you just winging it?
