+ - Guy Trademarks Town Welcome; Sends Invoices->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "In yet another example of intellectual property run amok, a guy in the small town of Parry Sound, Ontario has trademarked the phrase "Welcome to Parry Sound," and has been sending $1,000 invoices to anyone using the phrase. He was even able to get Facebook to shut down a group called "Welcome to Parry Sound," by claiming trademark infringement."
