Pantone Paint at Lowes...kinda?

So I was at Lowes yesterday (as usual) and saw this display of Pantone paint!!! On closer inspection they say "inspired by Pantone" and the Pantone site doesn't list Lowes as a participating retailer. Oddly enough there isn't mention of it on Lowe's site either so I wonder if a legal hullabaloo is happening.

In any case, the colors are pretty and the clear plastic containers let you see what is inside with more clarity than a 2" x 2" chip. Plus you don't have to worry about purchasing old, settled paint because you can see exactly what you are buying.

At $9.99 for 36oz, its competitively priced too.

Good job, Pantone name ripper-offers! If forced to drop the name I hope you rebrand but maintain this nifty packaging.
