Laughing Squid points to a story in the San Mateo Times detailing the copyright-infringement suit that Pez has brought against the Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia.

The giant Pez dispenser that Gary Doss and Nancy Yarbrough Doss created that got them into Guinness World Records is at the heart of the lawsuit:

Attorneys for Pez Candy Inc. argue that the 7-foot, 10-inch dispenser, which is topped with the head of a snowman, and other uses of the company's trademarked products by the Dosses "deceive the public into thinking that the museum is operating under the authority of Pez."
