It looks like I owe Starbucks an apology.
Well, it turns out that that’s not quite true. I received a response from Starbucks:
"We wanted to take this opportunity to respond to what appears to be an inaccurate portrayal of what has occurred.
There has been no lawsuit filed against "Backwash.com" by Starbucks Coffee Company. We merely sent a letter asking that "Backwash.com" respect our rights by ceasing any "framing" of the Starbucks web site."
They were also lying when they claimed that Starbucks were in the process of sueing them.
I’m glad that this has been cleared up. I’m afraid Backwash.com has lost all credibility for me.
