Slipknot VS Burger King



Slipknot threatens to place a lawsuit against Burger King

To Slipknot's personnel, Burger King may not be delicious anymore as they threatened to place a trademark-infringement lawsuit over a series of its advertisement if the fast-food company refused to pull all related ads from TV and the Internet. It was because of Burger King's feature of a band bearing a remarkable resemblance to Slipknot's outfit.

"It is obvious that the television advertising and Website are designed to conjure up the image and persona of a live performance of Slipknot," stated Howard Weitzman, Slipknot's attorney in his Aug. 4 letter. The lawyer also said that the resemblance "is no coincidence," making the fans already confused the fake band with the real Slipknot.
