2600.com has been dealing with this at a much more immediate level with Ford MoCo for awhile. Check their site to read about their case. Nutshell: the judge agreed with 2600 that linking to ford (from Fordreallysucks.com)is not a trademark infringement, as Ford asserted in their lawsuit. Ford is appealing, natch.

I just sent this message to Starbucks:

I just bought the little Springtime toy bear advertised on your site. I got to your site through a link from Boingboing.net, describing how your lawyers send threatening letters to anyone who links to you.

I was so surprised at this attitude that I followed Boing's link to Starbucks to see what all the fuss was about and there was the little bear for my niece. Perfect size, perfect price.

Ironic, don't you think?
