From the Digital Box Set: This week, we look at Famous Advertising Lawsuits. Because the stakes are so high in the world of marketing, it leads to some interesting - and odd - lawsuits. We’ll tell the story of how an elderly woman sued McDonald’s because her coffee spilled on her lap and why she won the case. How Microsoft came gunning for a 17 year-old Mike Rowe's website with the domain name www.MikeRoweSoft.com. How a Hollywood actress sued a store for tweeting a photo of her shopping there. And the amusing story of Hall & Oates suing a company over a cereal called Haulin’ Oats. Everyone rise, court is in session. This is an archived episode that aired originally on May 16, 2015.
