Oprah Winfrey sues Glebe?

Well, nearly.

Quote
Oatly, the plant milk maker backed by Oprah Winfrey, is in a court battle with a Cambridgeshire farm over alleged trademark infringement.

Lawyers for Oatly sought a High Court injunction on Thursday to stop Glebe Farm Foods selling its PureOaty drink.

Oatly said it contacted the PureOaty makers in early 2020 saying "their branding infringed our trademark".

Farmer Phillip Rayner, who owns Glebe Farm, said the PureOaty name was "a nod to the purity of the product".



Doesn't seem that similar to me.

Good luck, Glebe!

I'm not a trademark lawyer, but "oaty" is a cromulent English word. It would be like suing someone for describing their biscuits as "sweet" or "crumbly". Of course, messing with Oprah Winfrey is one of the stupidest things you could do.

If she'd have done that "You get a car! You get a car! You get a car! Everybody gets a car!" thing whilst dressed as a seagull then she might have had a case. But NO-ONE SUES OUR GLEBE.

I don't see the issue here. Go in the supermarkets and there are shelves full of oat milk/drink products, why have Oatly got arsey about this Glebe one? The names not the same or the packaging.

I've just gotten an email from Kellogg's, now they're suing me over my Glebe Flakes. They're even saying my slogan 'Ask about the Glebe Flakes!' is copyright infringement. You can't win!

I really hope Oprah doesn't see my new animated company logo, where a cartoon version of me is pulling the words 'Glebe Productions' along on a little sled.

Could it be that Glebe has no money to defend himself, and the other Oatly rivals are also from big corporates? And if them manage to scare him off, then it might set some kind of precedent for scaring others off? BUt yeah, you're right that there's no obvious case here.
