Stop Beam Suntory bullying a family business

This petition had 520 supporters

Beam Suntory subsidiary Cooley Distillery are trying to stop a small family from registering a brand they have built up for years.

The Distillery believes that their Connemara whiskey brand will be damaged if this small family run business manages to trademark their own Conn O'Mara cartoon figure, despite the fact it bears no resemblance to, or is even spelt the same, as their product.

If the Mansfield family business wish to defend their brand in court the multinational billion dollar corporation has demanded that their own costs will be awarded against the family.

Petition against Beam Suntory and, if necessary, boycott their products until they withdraw this unfounded attack on a small local business.

..and compare Connemara whiskey to Conn O'Mara the cartoon
