    Once Beeth's lame Yoda book is far enough along, I'll be contacting the legal department at Disney about the book, and making their contact information available here so others can as well. For maximum impact, it will be key to wait until the book is printed before making Disney aware. A few fun facts:

    - Given that YODA isn't a real word, Bethwald only used the name for the cat and the book because of its popularity created by the Star Wars films.
    - It is one of the most famous and unique (trade)marks in history.
    - It belongs to one of the most aggressive trademark enforcers in the world.

    "You you mean I can't use Yodoe? Buss the nayme of my catt"

    after looking at that document it really seems there is no way they can use that name for commercial purposes. If she can use it for the kids book. My only question,could it really possible that a big publishing house like Simon and Schuster would overlook something like this????

    yoda is a fitting name because he looks like yoda.

    but they cant name the book yoda because starwars wont like it.

    they might be able to say the cats name is yoda in the book, but not a giant YODA text on the cover.

    Yeah, that's my same question too. They have a team of lawyers vetting any potential legal snafu with each and every publish.
