MonsterAquariaNetwork and Li need your help!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MFK and all of MAN need your help!

Recently, we received a notice that we are being sued for breach of copyright and were given a cease and desist letter for both the word “Monster” and our logo, the “monster M”, despite the fact that the trademarks have been registered since 2005. Please take a minute to visit the blog that has been started and read to find out what you can do to help.

Li is a long time club member and has always been a huge personal supporter of CCA. He needs us now.

As you know, Li (neoprodigy) is also a massive supporter of the hobby, from donating funds and supplies to conventions to maintaining our series of free networks for fishkeepers of all kinds all over the world. His influence and support of the hobby should be legendary, and he has always maintained his sites at no cost to our members.

The network does not have the money for a lengthy legal battle and the future of the forums could be at risk. I would like to thank any of you that take the time to send emails, phone calls, or letters in our defense.

To reiterate, additional information and explanation can be found on the blog that has been set up at the following address: http://support.monsterfishkeepers.com/

I will have to say as a lay person, the logos are very different. There is no way I'd see the Monster Aquaria Logo and think it had anything to do with Monster energy drinks. One looks likes claw marks, the other looks like a demon. But then again, the beatles (Apple Records) kept suing Apple Computer Company even though a silhouette of and apple with a bite mark out of looks nothing like a picture of a bright green apple. I hope you guys win this suit. I'll try to send an email later.

There is also a post about this in the Lounge. A reasonable judge should dismiss the case as having no merit, but there are so few reasonable judges out there any more......

Thats Coca-Cola for you. They gotta make money some how seeing that they can't sell product..And I can say that, because I work for Pepsi :)

Joking aside, I dont see how anyone would confuse the two logo's. They look nothing alike. I will send an email as well. Hopefully this gets dropped.
