    >However, due to their standing, it is in all likelihood probable that they will be able to leverage this into profit of some sort, due to armtwisting for licensing agreements, and out of court settlements.<

    I was a bit surprised that Disney actually settled. You'd think they'd want to quash this sort of thing with all their legal muscle, lest they invite further trouble.

    (Oh, and what about Ahh! Real Monsters? )

    They settled with monster.com.

    As it turns out, monster.com has a small link on their USA site that reads "For patrons of Monster Cable" to the Monster Cable website.

    MonsterCable.com has no such link to reciprocate.

    The combinations are endless! No more legal woes for me!

    According to the article, they're after everyone and everything that uses or has used the word "monster".

    Seriously, the whole TradeMark thing is just getting out of hand.

    "Monster Cable sued Monster.com, the online résumé site. It sued Disney and Discovery Channel. In all three suits, Monster reached a confidential settlement. The company's general counsel, David Tognotti, said the company is now involved in "great partnerships" with all three companies."

    Well, that settlement might have been: Monster Cable backs off and Disney agrees not to crush them.

    In continuing news, the department store Grace Brothers & Sons has filed suit for trademark violations over the use of 'brothers' and 'sons' and is currently beginning legal action against half the families in the world.

    This is just stupid

    Google suggests it's quite real.

    Here's a funny:
    what if Monster Cable sued monsterlawsuits.com

    EDIT:

    Not so funny:

    And this is just sad ...

    Indeed. It took reading most of the first page of this thread for me to start believeing it was real. It's just such an insane precedent that I struggled to comprehend its validity. But now, well, I'm helping the cause by telling everyone I know who might buy Monster Cables not to.

    I've never bought a damn thing from them, and I don't plan to, so I'm doing my part

    That's brilliant. If you don't mind me nicking your idea (too late), I've just sent them an email (legal@monstercable.com).

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Please be advised that I am about to copyright the word 'onster'. Any use of this term in your branding may constitute an infringement of my intellectual property.

    Regards,


    In the unlikely event that they reply, I'll let you all know.

    There must be a company that was using the word monster long before they were.

    What about the term Monster Trucks? Maybe they think they can take on the automotive Industry too?

    Knowing disney, they probably went to monster cable's HQ to settle an agreement with their 'Lawyers'...smashed the place and calmly commenting "settled" as they left.

    Wow. That is so very, very, very, very, very sad and pathetic.

    What's a matter pwecious, did they huwt your wittle feewings?

    Either grow a pair of testicles and face up to them, or ignore them without telling everybody. This pansy-ass passive agressive bullshit just makes you look like more of a pussy. Oh yeah, and pretty much everybody agrees with what Dunbar said.

    Looks like Monster Cable has hired a trained monkey to post same response to different internet forums:

    link 1
    link 2
    link 3 (scroll down to post 7)

    Maybe we are going to see one here too...

    I've always found the ignore function sorta redundant on messageboards anyway, it's not like it's hard to just skim over a particular persons post and move on to the next one if you're bothered by him so much.

    Plus if said person does say something worthwhile on occasion, and everyone is responding to him...you can actually see what he's saying.

    Wow, I never realized the reason why every time I drank my energy drink, I got a craving for some delicious, chewy stereo cables. Maybe there is a connection.

    They may not be outright sueing, but they sure are making trouble.
