Several months back The Postal Service got into trouble because the United States Postal Service found the band's name to be an infringement on the USPS trademark. After some legal wrangling the affair was settled and part of the agreement was that the band would perform at a function/conference hosted by the Postmaster General. Bizarre indeed.

I had forgotten about this incident until today when I was standing behind someone wearing a Postal Service t-shirt with a little label on the back that read "The name Postal Service is used with permission of the United States Postal Service." Not very indie-rock is it?
