The Red Container Sues the Blue Container (Folgers Slaps Maxwell House in the Can)

Seems that Folgers has taken Maxwell House to court over their coffee container. Folgers say Maxwell House has played copycat and fashioned their blue plastic container after their original designed red coffee container. Ha ha! I reckon they did since I know Folgers was the first on the market with the red can. Guess they will be seeing you in court Max.

Ok, so I do think it is just a little bit humorous.

  1. I think it’s a stupid lawsuit. I question whether it is really in the interests of the P&G investors for the company to sue Kraft.

    It is probably not the most important thing to sue over but I suppose big corp.’s have to protect every little aspect of their biz.
