Corporations, Not People, Clog Our Courts 7 of 10

Hormel Foods, the maker of the luncheon meat SPAM, sued Jim Henson Productions to stop the creator of the Muppets from calling a character in a new movie SPAM, claiming that the character was unclean and grotesque and would call into question the purity and quality of its meats.  

A federal court rejected Hormel’s claims, and Hormel also lost on appeal.
