    Usually, copyright infringement has to do with intellectual property not... bread! However, the proprietors of a New York bakery have been forced to pull what was intended to be their signature bread "Scarborough Fairway" over a copyright issue with Simon & Garfunkel. The bread is named after one of the duo's hits.

    The bakery, Fairway Cafe to Go, has been asked to drop their Scarborough Fairway wreath-shaped loaf from their menu. The bakers chose that title because the bread features parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme, which are the lyrical ingredients of the folk tune.

    A representative for the bakery says the item has been changed to "Fairway's Herb Wreath" due to "an infringement rights issue." Ugh!

    The spokesperson said, "Fairway was sent a cease and desist letter re copyright infringement." The bread was intended as a tribute to New Yorkers Simon & Garfunkel and was expected to be a hot item on the menu when the bakery opened on Monday on New York's Upper East Side.

    What do you think of the bakery being forced to change the bread's name?
