      Subway backed down because they screwed up:

      With the number of roadfood joints that sell footlong hot dogs, it shouldn't be hard to get Subway's trademark for Footlong invalidated if they go after hot dog joints. Their trademark is only for sandwiches.

        David, I agree with your point, but am a bit concerned that Subway may have the Bucks and the 'Legalese' to make a long and expensive fight out of the use of the term. Many of the smaller 'Dog Business's won't be able to outlast the Big Corp.

        To me Subway is a latecomer...places like Nathan's etc have been around ages before the Subway came to be. There must be a clause for 'grandfathering' previous users of the word.
