If you thought that a fuddruckers actually served Kobe beef, I feel as though the money you spent should be at least partially accounted for as "life experience".

  False advertising is false advertising.
If they called it Kobee beef, that's one thing, but calling it Kobe is on the same scale as calling it 1/4 lb patty, if they aren't serving it, they get in trouble.

  Is this really true though?  1/4 lb is an easily quantifiable measurement.  Is "Kobe" really a protected/trademarked/defined term in the US?  My understanding was that it is (or at least was) not (it very much is in Japan) and that's why Joe's hamburger cart on 2nd street also sells "Kobe" burgers.  I'm curious what the requirements for selling "Kobe" beef in the US are - in that case.

  Interestingly Kobe 'Beef' is not trademarked in the USA, it is everywhere else
