Bringing back an updated version of the original logo is a way to celebrate our heritage and bring a little piece of Seattle to our stores across the country,' the company said in a statement. However, Starbucks said the removal of the sultry mermaid is not in response to the recent boycott of the logo by some conservative groups." [OC Register]
