Jay, aren't you worried you could get sued for mentioning the name that is to remain nameless? (not Bose this time) \:D \:D

If anyone owned the "rights" to the word "Monster", I would have thought that it would be Universal Studios who had a whole series of "Monsters"....Frankenstein, Wolfman, Mummy, Creature from the Black Lagoon ect. I'd LMAO if Universal decided to sue the whiny a$$ off of THAT cable company!

I feel bad for any company with the Monster name. They are running the risk of being associated with Monster Cable and having their good reputation sullied.
Monster Cable's tactics are despicable. I think I have one old Monster cable in my system still. I'm very tempted to cut it up and mail it to Noel Lee.

On the other hand, these guys may be smarter than we think. This is some seriously cheap publicity that gets their name out in a big way. Most of their lawsuits seem to die after a short period of media sensationalism.

I can't put my hands on them, but I've seen two quotes along the lines of "there is no such thing as bad publicity" and"I don't care what they say about me as long as they publish it".

It may turn some customers off, but it also introduces Monster to a bigger customer pool everytime they do it. Could you imagine how much they could sell if they lined up their pricing (much lower) to match the performance of their products?

Ray has a very good point.

Norrington: "No additional shot nor powder, a compass that doesn't point north,
[looks at Jack's sword]...and I half expected it to be made of wood. You are without doubt the worst pirate I've ever heard of."

Jack Sparrow: "Awww, but you have heard of me."

I totally disagree. This type of publicity is very bad for them. The owner of that company would not have dropped the lawsuit against moster mini golf and paid for their legal fees if he did not believe the press they were receiving was not detrimental to their company. I think they are finally realizing they can not continue with these frivolous lawsuits because damage control is becoming so overwhelming.

Are we sure Noel Lee doesn't have a menstrual cycle?
