  French Connection (clothing) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
French Connection is a clothing company that originated in the United Kingdom, but is now available worldwide.
A trademark infringement case brought by French Connection against the political youth organisation Conservative Future, which had adopted the spoof abbrevation "cfuk" (short for "Conservative Future UK"), was thrown out by a judge on the grounds that French Connection's "fcuk" was merely an offensive misspelling and so not worthy of genuine trademark status.
On March 14, 2003, it was reported by the BBC that a Welsh judge expelled a potential juror from the courtroom for wearing one of the fcuk range of T-shirts, saying that the "mis-spelt Anglo Saxon word" was a distraction and did not dignify the court proceedings.

 The French Connection - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The French Connection is a 1971 Hollywood film directed by William Friedkin.
It was followed in 1975 by a less-acclaimed sequel, French Connection II.
Friedkin later attempted to outdo the "Connection" chase scene with the infamous backwards car chase on a freeway in To Live and Die in L.A. In the summer of 2004, a pilot television show named NY-70 filmed a pilot episode that was based directly on The French Connection.

The United Kingdom-based apparel company French Connection Group (which operates under the acronym FCUK, for French Connection U.K.) is producing the new fragrances.
French Connection United Kingdom is a real company that has built its reputation on their name's acronymic similarity to the "king of all four-letter words."
Marshall Field's has carried the French Connection clothing line for years and credits much of the new product's outrage to the company's choice to use only the acronym on the packaging and promotional materials (FCUK's clothing lines carry the company's full name).
