FAIL Blog vs Guinness World Records: Links, Pics, Videos, and News

Failblog posts obvious fail on Guinness' part, Guinness cries about trademark infringement. Open mouth, insert foot.

how is posting a screen shot an infringement of a copyrighted logo? If it were me, I'd have blown the logo up bigger.

Here's the link directly to the failblog posting, not the buzzfeed.

OMG U FAIL SO HARD FAIL Blog: Pictures and Videos of Owned, Pwnd and Fail Moments

Here's the link to the additional legal response from failblog to Guinness Book.

Legal Response

Love all that. Any response to a legal threat that includes the word douchebaggy is a winner.

They should have just said:

"you know what, you're right...we really fucked up there, and in a messed up sorta way. Thanks for pointing that out for us, but we would appreciate it is you would note the revision we've now made to that record on your site."

Like the United Guitar thing, they probably could have saved themselves a lot of pain.
