John Lennon has also been the subject of much speculation recently as his late wife Yoko Ono forced a Polish beverage company to change the name of its new drink. The lemonade drink dubbed ‘John Lemon’ changed their drink’s name to ‘On Lemon’ after Ono wrote to the company with a warning of heavy infringement violations. The company Mr Lemonade insisted that they hadn’t exploited the singer’s image to sell their drinks even though they used the phrase ‘Let It Be’ with a picture of round circular glasses in their marketing materials.
