MAFIA PIZ­ZAS GO DOWN BADLY

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - Drama In Real Life -

Euro­pean Union judges failed to see the funny side of brand­ing a chain of pizze­rias as ‘The Mafia’, re­ject­ing an ap­peal by a Span­ish com­pany. The judges said it was not right to grant le­gal pro­tec­tion to the slo­gan ‘ La Mafia se sienta a la mesa’ (The Mafia’s at the ta­ble) be­cause it ‘pro­moted’ an or­gan­i­sa­tion known for ex­tor­tion, cor­rup­tion and mur­der.
