E$$O sets attack dogs on protest site

Mighty E$$O the world's biggest company, is seeking to shut down the web site of an environmental protest group - because its logo has been doctored. It is taking Greenpeace, a member of the StopEsso coalition, to court in France. The logo which replaces the double S in Esso with dollar signs causes "reputational damage" to Esso, which seeks €80,000 a day in compensation. According to StopEsso, the oil giant claims "the doctored letters resemble the moniker of the Nazi secret police, the 'SS'" (actually, that's the Gestapo).
