Hershey Sues Over Candy Book Cover

Simon & Schuster have settled an injunction against them made by the Hershey Company over inappropriate use of the Hershey trademark for the book cover of Hershey : Milton S. Hershey’s Extraordinary Life of Wealth, Empire, and Utopian Dreams, “the story of ‘a gambler, raconteur, despot and servant’.” The settlement will allow Simon & Schuster to keep the strikingly attractive cover to the left as long as Simon & Schuster slap an “Unauthorized” sticker on every cover.

We’re really concerned with this story because of an adorably snarky quote from the book’s author:

Author Michael D’Antonio called the settlement “a victory for people who can’t tell the difference between recycled paper and chocolate”…

A man well after the inflatable black bladders of bile throbbing cold and deep within our own chests!
