French Connection was an unremarkable brand in the UK until someone had the idea to re-brand themselves FCUK, so that people wearing their T-shirts made you check twice when the bold letters caught your eye.> Well, I hope Fool UK wouldn't stoop so low as to try to copyright FOUK. I am not saying I wouldn't try to get ahold of one of these t-shirts and maybe wear it occasionally around LA (where it might not draw much attention), but I would still favor my traditional American Fool shirt (like when I work out at the YMCA, or attend parent/teacher conferences and stuff). <I understand they copyrighted not only FCUK but every combination of those letters! Now if they got a royalty for each utterance.....;-)>Yes. Imagine how expensive a Quentin Tarantino movie would be to make in the UK if that were the case. And an English version of the Blair Witch Trial--forget about it. It would run over budget 5 minutes after those kids got lost in the woods. <Anyway, greetings from Fool UK!>Great to hear from you.Michael(traditional Fool)
