Jack Daniel's - Classy Move

We've already heard about the good works done by Jack Daniel's in supporting our troops. Now the Tennessee distiller is showing it's a good citizen once more. When the folks at Jack Daniel's heard that the cover of Patrick Wensink's Broken Piano for President was infringing on the distillery's trademark they sent a unique, and polite, cease and desist letter.

Text excerpted from letter posted here.

Not only did the the folks at Jack Daniel's not threaten to sue, they actually offered to help pay the costs involved in changing the cover. That's a very classy move.

See the author's response here.

But seriously, did Wensink's publisher really think such a blatant rip-off would go unnoticed?


  1. Very cool move my JD. Reposting this where ever I can! Thanks for the info.

  2. First beer and now I am going to have to start drinking whiskey too.

    1. As long as it's good beer and good whiskey, then I will not consider this a bad thing. :-)
