hey all! besides mining and gambling bitcoins one of my other hobbies is that i breed african cichlids.    Anyhow among fishkeepers, the forum Monsterfishkeepers.com is tops, everyone in the hobby goes there.  Now they are being threatened with a lawsuit by Monster energy drinks for the Use of the word Monster, and the letter "M" in their logo.  Monsterfishkeepers owns the trademarks for their name and their logo, but in no way can afford to defend a lawsuit vs a large corporation and monster knows this.  I think this is absolutely shameful that a corporation could actually legal claim to have exclusive rights to a common word, or the fricking letter m!  So i'm boycotting monster, which kind of sucks bc i drink them a pretty good bit. and i signed the petition.  You can read more about it and sign the petition here:  http://support.monsterfishkeepers.com/  ,
thanks!

The logo looks quite similar. You are in deed infringing on their trademark for the letter M.

Just have a design contest and be done with it!
