I've had this before, it's actually not bad as colas go. Still got one can unopened as a novelty.
Ubuntu is a registered trademark of Canonical Ltd. I'm fairly sure they'd be unhappy about it being used to sell cola...
More important what sort of publicity is Canonical going to end up with if they decide to go after a Fairtrade cola, which isn't really competing with them in any way or benefiting from their work (aside from the occasional geeks who might pick up a pack of Ubuntu cola)?
So, for example, I could release a brand new type of mini-sponge which is especially soft and call it a Microsoft sponge without worrying about trademark infringement - unless Microsoft decided to go into the sponge-making business.
I don't really see much for them to get upset about here.
According to the Urban Dictionary, ubuntu is also an African phrase meaning "humanity towards others".
We shop with Ocado and I'll order this next time to see what it tastes like.
Yes it meant this long before Canonical hijacked it for their OS. If they tried to sue a judge would throw it out as Cola and Software are not closely related so there is no chance of confusion.
If they wanted to be really adventurous they could even come to some sort of deal for Fairtrade to promote Ubuntu (sensible enough in a way), and Ubuntu to sell the cola through their site.
VW make a Polo and Nestle make Polo's, never any trouble there. And I don't think 'Polo in the Park' is anything to do with cars or mints!
