Rogers sues Bell over barfing cheetah tv ad.

Rogers Communications in Canada is suing over this Bell TV ad because
"The Cheetah & Hare ad disparages denigrates, discredits, tarnishes, diminishes and otherwise depreciates the value of the goodwill associated with the Rogers trademarks and Rogers brand".

Wow! and I thought it was just a cartoon.. Besides the obvious draw of having a cartoon cheetah puking on tv, this story on the CBC has one of the best quotes ever:
"I don't even think Ted saw the ads until well after we had been communicating back and forth with Bell. So this was not a Ted-driven command," Boynton said.
