The town of Paisley, Scotland,


The town of Paisley, Scotland, home of the Paisley design, is upset by a Japanese firm seeking rights in the name PAISLEY MUSEUM, according to this somewhat confusing article.  Original designs would themselves have entered the public domain name long ago.  The Paisley pattern itself is based on Indian motifs.  A good history on Paisley is here (source of the illustration above).
