In 1988, The Eagles filed a lawsuit against the Natinoal Foundation to Protect America's Eagles (NFPAE). The complaint? The NFPAE, the band absurdly declared, had infringed upon its name and image by registering the internet address 'eagles.org' and using the phone number 1-800-2-Eagles.

Ironically, shortly before launching the suit, Eagles frontman Don Henley adopted an eagle -- which had been rescued by the NFPAE!

[In 2000, the Eagles filed suit against a Dallas businessman named Bill Arnold for naming his "Hotel California Grill" after their hit 1976 song "Hotel California." Arnold's response? "This is a restaurant, not a song."]
