Patrafico AG, the maker of Pez candies, has sued the Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia for displaying a giant-sized copy of a Pez dispenser that is claimed to be the worlds largest Pez dispenser.
The Swiss candymaker is claiming trademark infringement. the candy dispensers come with a variety of heads. Paskesz even makes Kosher Pez.
Sometimes one wonders why companies choose to file suit. one would assume that the US based museum generates interest in and thus sales of the sweets. If the Swiss company want to own the record, why don’t they simply commission a bigger dispenser?
