    The Pillsbury company introduced the term Bake-Off in 1949 and has it as a
    registered trademark. They also own the web site www.bakeoff.com

    Their lawyers have apparently recently started attacking other groups and
    organizations that use the word for very different purposes.

    See news article from today in the New Jersey Star-Ledger at:


    Any suggestions for another term that we can use in the future, or do you
    want to take on a fight with the Doughboy?
