Pebble Beach v B&B

In yet another case of lawyers wasting their clients' money, the famous Pebble Beach Golf club has been told (yet again) that they cannot sue the owner of a Bed&Breakfast establishment in Barton-on-Sea in the south of England for trademark infringement.

It's an indication of how silly the case got that one of the claims was that since the owner of the B&B once worked in a restaurant in California he must be targeting his business at people in California.

For readers outside the UK and the generally lawyerly challenged, take a look at these pictures for a clue as to why a B&B in Barton might be called Pebble Beach.
