Who you gonna call? Your lawyers. Columbia Pictures rang its legal eagles upon discovering its red-and-white Ghostbusters logo decorating the packages and individual bags of Fatbuster diet tea. The studio, which trademarked the ”no- ghost” logo, filed suit in U.S. District Court against Natural Aids, a New Jersey tea manufacturer, claiming the tea ”is likely to cause confusion in the trade and is likely to deceive consumers as to the source and origin of such goods.” Fatbuster, after seeing the court papers, says, ”We won’t use the logo anymore.”
