Don't mess with the canned meat folks
The Hormel company is suing over the use of the term Spam to describe junk e-mail. More specifically, it's complaining about a company called Spam Arrest, LLC. According to the Washington Post, "[t]he company [said] that Spam Arrest's name so closely resembles that of its lunch meat that the public might become confused, or might think that Hormel endorses Spam Arrest's products."
