Things you learn on Wikipedia

This one has no sources, but assuming it's accurate....

The Energizer Bunny was a ripoff! Duracell actually started the bunnies (pic above). Their bunnies don't have sunglasses and look a bit different, but the similarities are striking. They still use them in countries other than the US, but according to the wikipedia entry, Duracell (part of P&G) didn't renew the patent in the US, and so Energizer saw an opportunity.

Renew your patents!
