    Legal action against MonsterFishKeepers.com

    Post by Fern on Wed Jul 18, 2012 3:05 am

    I read this on another forum, this is insane!;

    You may or may not be familiar with the Monster Fish Keepers
    Network... The MFK network is a resource for aquarists
    around the world. Thousands of beginners rely on information and
    conversation on the MFK websites (aquariacentral.com
    monsterfishkeepers.com aquatic-photography.com) as they learn how to
    properly keep aquariums. The sites are a vibrant community maintained
    by volunteers.

    Monster Energy Drinks is threatening legal action against
    MonsterFishKeepers.com for trademark infringement.
    MonsterFishKeepers.com has had a registered trademark since 2005, but
    this hasn't stopped Monster Energy Drinks from threatening action. The
    logos are not similar, do not use the same color pallet, and the
    brands do not compete for the same audience. Monster Energy Drinks
    knows they have no legal standing, in fact they have dropped similar
    suits in the past when public pressure was too much to bear. The
    Consumerist ran an article about it this morning.

    MonsterFishKeepers.com needs your help. Spread the word that you do
    not support the corporate bullying that Monster Energy Drinks is a
    part of.
