The global coffee chain Starbucks is suing a Bangkok street vendor for 300,000 baht for copying its famous green logo on his 'Starbung' coffee cart. 

In its Trademark Act violation complaint against Damrong Maslae, Starbucks Corp is also demanding a monthly payment of 30,000 baht plus legal fees.

The US-based chain says the vendor has designed his own trademark in a way that is similar to Starbucks, featuring a round logo and dark green background with a human figure inside the circle.
