Give Denise Whiting a break, hon

December 20, 2010

I must be one of the few who remember a lovely little Baltimore restaurant called Sony's. It was owned and run by a hard-working little woman from the Philippines named Sony. Sony Electronics made her change the name, and her little eatery never quite recovered. The Just Desserts bakery next to the Hollins Market was taken to court by a bakery of the same name in California. Starbucks tried to sue a monastery for selling Christmas Blend Coffee. (Starbucks lost.) Can anyone blame Denise Whiting for trademarking the name of a restaurant and festival that she started? This person has done so much for the area, and the people who are giving her a hard time should be ashamed of themselves.
