With Vegeta dishes taste better!

Post by Piccolo Daimaoh » Mon Jun 21, 2010 5:35 am

So, I was randomly googling things and something compelled me to google "Vegeta" and the third website that came up was in fact: http://www.vegeta.com.au. That's right, the Saiyan prince has his own website.


Yes, I know people have posted the "Vegeta" spice before (and sometimes even with Vegeta himself photoshopped on it), but no one has posted the website and I thought it would be a fun thing to share with you guys. I wonder though how the people who make this product managed to use the word "Vegeta" as it's name and still avoid lawsuits from FUNimation.


If the moderators feel that this thread is pointless or stupid, I have no problems with them locking this thread.

Oh man, I kept seeing the ads for this during Master Chef and the like and never picked up on the name.
... Maybe later.

By predating them by several decades? :P According to wiki, it was created in Croatia in 1959.

Also, in addition to the Australian website: http://www.vegeta.com/

It should be the spice company that should sue Toriyama for infringing on their trademark. :P

That's a character's name. Like they added the "®" next to Vegeta on it in the Budokai/Sparking (Budokai Tenkaichi) games. Hence, it's a name pun from vegetable.

You seem to have missed a substantial part of the discussion, but here is an explanation.

The company name "Vegeta" is a trademark, and the name was created in Croatia in 1959. Dragonball started in 1984, and came thus after the name "Vegeta" was a trade mark. Thus, in theory, the company "Vegeta" could sue Toriyama for using their company name for a character.

But I wonder how it would work since you can romanize Vegeta in different ways (Bejita, Vegeta, Begeta ect.). Or am I totally wrong? :P

I think FUNimation would be the ones to get sued, because they specifically trademarked the "Vegeta" romanization. Toei/Toriyama would probably be okay, since they've only trademarked "ベジータ" (Bejiita).

I doubt Toei/Shueisha will get their butts sued for the name usage by Podravaka.

I'm not saying that they will, but that they could sue them. If they wanted to.
