Splenda is being sued by another artificial sweetener manufacturer over the way Splenda characterizes itself.  Splenda claims on its packaging that it is “made from sugar so it tastes like sugar”.  The makers of Equal claim this is a misrepresentation.  This isn’t frivolous.  No way. 

This is one of those instances where a large corporation has filed a huge lawsuit, the type that the organizations large corporations belong to are always railing against.  However, people like the US Chamber of Congress aren’t fighting to take the large corporation’s right to sue away or cap the damages large corporations can sue for.  Yeah, corporations have the right to sue over this, but injured people should not have the right to be made whole.  How sickening.  The article is on Law.com.
