Corporate Shenanigans – No, Monster, You Do Not Own The Rights To the Word “Monster”

This is, to put it mildly, absolutely asinine.

To review, Monster Energy Drink wants to get into the alcohol market, so they sued a Vermont brewer because he had the nerve, NERVE, to use the lame pun “Vermonster” to describe his beer. Apparently they are concerned that the brands could be confused, which I would think would be rather difficult to do, since Vermonster is a product of quality.

Basically, this brewery got there first. In point of fact, a lot of products in Vermont use the term “Vermonster” (it describes a sandwich in every pizza joint in the state). And now Monster is suing to take away his copyright basically because they know he doesn’t have the money.

I think now would be a good time to stop drinking Monster Energy, don’t you?

    Since I live 2000 miles from vermont and no one here will know I stole it, my penis is now officially called “the vermonster”. Hope i dont get sued. Or possibly I will nickname it based on the state I am in at that time followed by -onster. I’m going to have to really think about this.

    btw…just read through all the archives man. Good stuff. Didnt even know you had this until i noticed it in your sig today.
