Look into the drama that schflay (sp?) is having. Your name don't mean squat sometimes.

Your name don't mean squat sometimes.Steve, I googled that story and it is a nightmare of a dispute. Phyllis and the doctor sound ridiculous and A-B/Inbev is now is dispute with them as well. Not going to get any easier anytime soon!
if I opened a brewery and called it Fullers of Davis?How about is I specialized in British style ales?What if my flagship beers were 'Davis Pride' and Fullers ESB? (is that last one just pushing it too far?)I theoretically have every right to the name Fullers as it IS my last name.Not that I'm actually considering it but it's thought that has wandered across my mind from time to time.
Would you be competing against them in their marketing area? If not I doubt it would be that big of a deal. Could you imagine Sierra Nevada suing a girl named Sierra Nevada in Pakistan for naming her beer after herself?
If they heard of you.... thats the key. I'm pretty sure if you were in davis only, and didn't mimick their logo, probably yur fine. If you wers big eniugh for Fullers to target you? Not a bad problem to have. Your martyrdom would make you even more famous.
