Target poked in the eye by Music Choice

An expensive, drawn-out legal battle between Target (America's slightly less-cluttered Tesco/Woolworth hybrid) and Music Choice (the Sky-carried audio service that nobody you've ever met listens to) has ended with Target being told it has no rights to the bulls eye marque in the UK, and being ordered to pay £100,000 to cover some of Music Choice's costs. There are still hearings to be held to consider the matter in Europe; Target stockholders might also want to ponder why the company has been spending so much cash defending a logo in a country where the company doesn't operate so much as a school tuck shop.
