The Boston Licensing Board today warned the owner of Kippy's South, 295 Old Colony Ave., she's on thin ice after police arrested a kid from Milton who drove up with some buds to stock up on 40-oz. bottles of beer.

A Boston police detective told the board this morning the underage drinker went into the store with a bad fake ID but never had to use it because he wasn't asked for one. Police say nearby residents have complained about kids buying alcohol at the store, which had its license suspended for four days in 2009 and two days in 2006 for selling to minors.

On the way back from a Lank's run, we saw the Channel 7 news truck outside the Tedeschi's on Truman Highway. Probably something to do with Aquapocalypse, we thought. Checked the WHDH web site to find that the breaking news was the scandal of the employees there putting together bottles of water into improvised cases - at the demand of customers - and selling them at half the price they would have charged for the same number of individual bottles. OMG! Where is Hank Phillipi Ryan when you need her?

Confused?BAA cites this magnet as example.The Boston Athletic Association yesterday filed a federal lawsuit against CafePress and Zazzle for letting users sell T-shirts, magnets and mugs related to a famous race held on Patriots Day in Eastern Massachusetts that the BAA doesn't even want you to refer to without paying them for the privilege.

The suit, filed in US District Court in Boston, seeks several million dollars in damages. Although some of the examples cited by the BAA use its trademarked unicorn symbol or the words "Boston Marathon,' the BAA alleges it is also suffering "irreparable injury" from shirts bearing logos such as "BOS 26.2," "BOSTON 26.2" and "BOSTON QUALIFIER," especially when combined with an image of a runner and the date of the specific 26.2-mile footrace through several cities and towns in eastern Massachusetts. The BAA says these are "confusingly similar" and "falsely suggest sponsorship by or affiliation with the BOSTON MARATHON event."

BOSTON MARATHON® is a famous mark. The B.A.A. has for decades expended considerable efforts and resources promoting the BOSTON MARATHON® event and operating a licensing program that makes official BOSTON MARATHON® merchandise available to the public. The B.A.A. has also expended considerable efforts and resources in enforcing its exclusive and valuable rights in the BOSTON MARATHON® mark. The public recognizes the BOSTON MARATHON® mark as indicating a single source of goods and services.

Both companies only sell products designed by users. The suit was also technically brought against ten "John Does," although the BAA complaint limits its demand for monetary penalties - and advertising the shirts were not connected with that race - to the two T-shirt publishers.

Complete complaint.

If a doctor's patient injures herself on a new curb outside her doctor's office and she sues both the doctor and the landlord, the landlord can't just wash its hands of the matter, even if the lease says it can, the Supreme Judicial Court ruled today.

At the same time, though, the court also ruled that lease provisions requiring tenants to pay for insurance for such occurrence are legal.
