Ubuntu cola is not available here in the states but I really want some. Any friends from across the pond want to ship me some?

I didn't realise you could buy it, but these guys ship to the states (http://www.ethicalsuperstore.com/products/ubuntu/ubuntu-cola-330ml/)

note that ubuntu cola has nothing to do with the operating system. And from what people here are saying, they might not like linux at all.

I know it has nothing to with the OS. But hey, it's called Ubuntu, its soda, its Fair Trade. What's not to like?

Well I stumbled upon this sight
http://img297.imageshack.us/img297/3011/dsc00173dy2.th.jpg (http://img297.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dsc00173dy2.jpg)
on a Selecta vending machine in the subway in Stockholm, Sweden the other day and thought cool I need to get me one of those, so I looked in the machine, no go, nothing, nada that said Ubuntu :/
Well might just have missed it or it haven't been put in yet so I went to the closest 7-Eleven, nope they never heard of it, went to all the small 7-Eleven like stores/shops what ever around (like 20 of them just around the subway central) and nobody had it in or even knew of it. (also none of the vending machines had it)
Well Marketing in Central Stockholm great but when there isn't a product around? ](*,)

Where can I get this?
or isn't it out yet or what? =P

And true it doesn't have your Logo but the colors/name, if it's a trademark infringement do I get a finders fee? =P Since I misstook it for a product of yours that would qualify ;)


Anyone know anything about this??

The text in swedish just says "the first fairtrade marked cola"

The development team is always taking liquid cooling to the next level.

Just found this myself, don't really care it's not connected to Canonical but Ubuntu is a registered trademark and as you can see in the picture the colors are the same and name, which would stipulate and infringement unless Canonical feels it doesn't but I never heard about it before (as you can see from the post) and I took it for a Canonical product.

How should I know, just saw that it wasn't connected but still the colors and name and since they do merchandising? what would be so odd about it, but the comes the question since I mistook it for a Canonical product how close to trademark rules is it? =P

Hrm, two cans (one to drink and one to keep) would cost about $16 USD (11.50£) with shipping.
