and San Mateo County Times
report that the Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia
, which lives in the back of a shop called Computer Spectrum, is being sued for copyright infringement by Connecticut's Pez Candy, Inc.
The candy company disputes the museum's 7-foot, 85 pound snowman dispenser, which is not an official Pez product but was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records
as the largest Pez dispenser in the world in 2007, and fears that customers might mistake the museum to also be an official Pez property. In short, Pez wants Frosty dead. That's a pretty cruel and unusual potential fate for something so jolly (and harmless), no?
