    Or it'll be like that book where Madonna got her tits out and it's now worth a load of money. ...

    I'm reliably informed there are no exposed bits of madonna in DIY Dog so may not be worth much in the coming years

    They'd better hope Mr Costello doesn't hear about that.

    It would be funny if BD got a cease and desist notice from the Presley estate (oh, the irony :lol:)

    The only thing that the founders of Brewdog are true to is making money. The fact that it has come via brewing beer is secondary.

    Bit unfair, as the content of this book has been available for free for quite a while, and probably still is.

    I was prepared to give BD the benefit of the doubt but the recent 'revalation' that BD have trademaked the word punk in relation to beer tells me that their first and foremost interest is money and the realease of DIY dog was purely a marketing strategy

    And all the other other people called Elvis in the world. How can Elvis Presley's estate copywrite the name Elvis, or it's link with beer?

    BD have managed to copywrite the word punk if it's related to beer, so it proves it doable. I also rembember reading in the paper that some famous couple (cant remember who off the top of my head Edit: Jay-zee and boyence) has copywrighted the name of their newly born sprogs in relation to a whole range of products such as kids toys

    Trademark, not copyright. Big difference. If you haven't read this then I do recommend it. The point is clear. In business you must, as a defensive measure, trademark your product's identity because if you don't somebody else will.

    The example they give is quite enlightening. If they didn't trademark their product's identity somebody else could do it and then the next day sell the mark to AB-InBev who could then sue Brewdog out of existence for using 'their' mark.

    Does the book print detailed steps? The reason I ask is I was following someones brew day making one of their beers, and it wasn't anything like the way I would have made it.
