CASE ENTRY

Martin v. Wendy’s International, Inc.

Guinness World Record holder for most consecutive kicks on a “footbag”—aka, a Hacky Sack—sues Guinness and Wendy’s fast food restaurants, claiming a cross promotion they ran with his name and record violated trademark law. Seventh Circuit says you can hack, brah, but you can’t state a claim.
