Hormel Sues Over Name

By Deane Barker on July 2, 2003

The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Hormel can’t stomach Seattle tech company that blocks out spam: I always wondered when the makers of Spam (big “S”) were going to revolt over the co-opting of their name.

“Unable to stuff this problem back into the can, Hormel is instead doing what companies often do: asserting its trademark rights. Claiming dilution of the trademarked name Spam, the company has filed complaints against Spam Arrest, a Seattle technology company that provides spam-blocking software for e-mail users.”
