The owner of Piece, Love and Chocolate, a Colorado-based chocolate store, penned an open letter to Vosges founder Katrina Markoff after receiving a whopper of a cease-and-desist letter from her lawyers, threatening legal action if the store doesn't change their store name and marketing materials in one week. Vosges claims that they have trademarked the tagline "Peace, Love, and Chocolate" and that the Colorado store's name is "confusingly similar" and "unfairly competitive."
