Brand Names in Fiction

Sometimes social media works.  I asked Smasher Pinky (a big supporter of writers like me at Pinky's Pub on Facebook) if I would get in trouble for using real liquor brands in the David Priest Project.  Heidi C. Vlach chimed in with this link.

I don't have any lawyers on my payroll, yet.  Hell, no one's on my payroll.  Thanks for the help, Heidi.

Seems like as long as I don't imply that Stolichnaya causes retroactive birth defects or anything like that, I'll be okay.  Can't have David Priest reaching for "that Russian vodka" throughout the whole book.
