This is in response to Lawrence Fury’s letter in the Aug. 2 issue:
I don’t believe that anyone went out of their way to report Twisted Kilt Black Iron Grill to the company serving the C&D. Unfortunately, copyright, trademark and patent law are very weakly enforced, and in almost every field the company with the bigger, more well-funded legal team can bully small companies into complying with ludicrous demands. Usually their lawyer(s) will trawl internet search engines looking for easy targets to bully or snuff out. Putting these companies on blast and making sure their consumers close to home know about this bad behavior is the best way to counter these practices, no matter what type of business it is or how big it is.
That being said, I’m 100-percent behind the Twisted Kilt Black Iron Grill. As my body can’t digest gluten, their cornbread waffles gave me a way to enjoy waffles again. Their flavors are stellar and the owner is extremely friendly and eager to please. Whatever choice Twisted Kilt makes, whether it’s changing their name to (blank) or Cease & Desist Black Iron Grill, I plan to continue showing up with cash in hand for as long as they’re willing to feed me delicious food.
