Acronyms in the News

The October 1 issue of The Week magazine mentions that the International House of Pancakes is suing the International House of Prayer (A Kansas City religious mission) for using its acronym. Apparently the International House of Prayer has abbreviated its name as IHOP for the past 10 years without incident and only recently has it become an issue, according to an International House of Pancakes spokesman, because "the church has expanded and now some of the branches are serving food."

I wonder what would happen if the International House of Prayer started giving out MP3 players loaded with prayers and changed the orthography of its acronym to iHOP?
