spam vs. SPAM

It seems that Hormel (makers of a fine luncheon meat) lost a trademark battle with a company using “Spam” in their name. Hormel has always been good humored about the use of spam vs. Spam vs. SPAM, including the Monty Python skit, and it’s sad to see stupid companies (like spamarrest, which is also holding an asinine patent on challenge-response, especially because C-R systems are part of the junk mail problem) trying to take advantage of Hormel’s obvious trademark claim.
