This overly cautious attempt to circumvent a copyright violation fails to recognize the fact that the egg now has the name of two Manchester United legends on it, thus doubling the chances of chocolate-based litigation.
Even though there is actually no provision in UK copyright law to protect people's names and this whole story is utterly ridiculous, it is understood that Paul Scholes is preparing to "lawyer up" and sue for the egg.
Although he'll probably settle out of court for half of it. He's not greedy.



So the poor kid won`t get an easter egg,,,,,..... cos Paul Scholes will be entitled to his half, and Wayne Rooney will get the other half ! ! ! !  Cheesy

Re: Most ridiculous news story of the day.

When you read the full story, Thorntons agreed to write the kid's full name without question. So why is she now crying to the press with the 'compo face' pose?
Stupid woman.

I was referring to the parents as opposed to the poor offspring that will have to suffer the cruelty of such ignorant acts .......
