He showed them online and FedEx said that he didn't own those boxes but he had gotten all of them with things inside.
Coca-Cola is ordering an Israeli company called SodaStream which makes DIY carbonated beverage products to quit using cage displays of empty used cans and bottles (garbage) which included Coke products.
These cages have been used in more than 20 exhibits around the world, with a text reading "1 Family. 5 Years. 10,657 bottles and cans."
Coke is claiming they have ownership over trademark and thus the right to control their brand image on discarded packaging. However they don't make any claim to owning the actual garbage left over from their product, and thus take no responsibility for cleanup or recycling.
So, we have a legal situation where a manufacturer says it is not garbage, and yet it is garbage. Does a business have the legal right to control how their products are used or displayed after being purchased, used up, and thrown away?
