Bono
Not only did they steal his name, they obviously stole his likeness, too.

I mean, come on. It's uncanny!

Amazing!





That article might be right. Once they steal your name and slap it on squid, it's all downhill from there.

Bono should have trademarked ripping his shirt open.

Totally off topic, but when I'm in Latin America this still makes me smile.

Someone who happens to be named Paul Hewson should trademark his name and then just sit back and watch the fun.

Haha, I don't think it's a sign that they're breaking up. Bono probably just got tired of people putting his name on dumb products.

I'm surprised anyone reads it past the title.

Well people we've actually been infringing on "insert singer's name here"s rights since 2001, which is when he actually first registered the trade mark with the European Intellectual Property Office. And seeing it's in force until 2021, we will all need to tread very carefully for the next 9 years....
