New York Bakery's Simon & Garfunkel Bread Tribute Nixed

Simon & GarfunkelBosses of a New York bakery have been forced to pull their signature bread over a copyright dispute with Simon & Garfunkel.

Fairway Cafe to Go proprietors were asked to drop their Scarborough Fairway wreath-shaped loaf - because of its ties to the duo's hit "Scarborough Fair."

The bakers opted for the title because the bread features parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme - the lyrics of Paul Simon's folk tune.

A representative for the bakery says the item has been changed to Fairway's Herb Wreath due to "an infringement rights issue."

The spokesperson says, "Fairway was sent a cease and desist letter re: copyright infringement."

The bread, which was intended as a tribute to New Yorkers Simon & Garfunkel, was expected to be a hot item on the menu when the bakery opened on Monday on New York's Upper East Side.
