Shazam999: Voiceofreason01: The cease and desist letter was in pretty plain language. Domain camping isn't cool./this Freivald guy sounds like an asshole.I think for geographical names they're pretty well fair game. Don't know for absolutely certainty though. Better ask a lawyer.
MNguy: I think he said 'pro bono' when he meant to say 'pro se'. Rookie mistake.
vudutek: kxs401: Huh, it's actually the writer of the response letter who comes off as rather an asshole bully.At least Freivald hired a bigger asshole to smack down the lesser asshole.
meyerkev: Rent Party: He also said "I want this shiat in front of a jury of North Idaho rednecks."Much as I may not always like rednecks, I will always approve of their theory that "Being a dipshiat is your own damn fault".
Raoul Eaton: reminds me of the day Rauol Jr, in a fit of pique over something I was saying, loudly demanded that I "Decease and Persist"
Begoggle: Not to many real lawyers do "pro bono" work for some domain squatter.What's the real story here?
kxs401: Huh, it's actually the writer of the response letter who comes off as rather an asshole bully.
noitsnot: Kind of weird how his CSB has you so frantic. Anything you want to talk about?
OhioUGrad: Unprofessional, but hilarious. It's like the two girls who talk trash to each other then slap fight.It's two lawyers, they should duel at sunup.....one less lawyer means we all win.
4tehsnowflakes: Gabrielmot: It sounds (to me) like he's implying in the P.P.S. that someone is already doing this, and that his claim for "excess property taxes" from the P.S. would be valid if this was brought to light for the public. Actually sounds like a veiled threat.-I think we may have found one of the last lawyers in the states with balls.Yes, he has balls and yes he is making a threat in the PPS. He is alleging that the current administration did a sweetheart deal to line someone's pockets on the official website design and maintenance.However, the threat to harass the township with an unrelated claim over the valuation of his personal property for tax purposes is out of place and inappropriate. It has nothing to do with the case. And the threat to expose corruption does not belong here either. If you piss off the judge you do a disservice to the client.And to those imagining that the lawyer who wrote the letter could be in trouble for doing that, think again. No case has been filed. Even if it were filed, the bar is set pretty high on sanctioning lawyers for filing frivolous cases. It has to be obviously for purposes of harassment. A weak trademark-based claim is not going to get you there.
The Pope of Manwich Village: From 2008, Blue Jeans Cable responds to Monster Cable's cease-and-desist letter on certain patents and trademarks:http://www.bluejeanscable.com/legal/mcp/response041408.pdf"If Monster Cable proceeds with litigation against me I will pursue the same merits-driven approach; I do not compromise with bullies and I would rather spend fifty thousand dollars on defense than give you a dollar of unmerited settlement funds.
ArcadianRefugee: Raoul Eaton: reminds me of the day Rauol Jr, in a fit of pique over something I was saying, loudly demanded that I "Decease and Persist"A demand you become a zombie? That would confust the hell out of me.
Dear Jerk: There was this guy who stole my gal and I stole her back so he used his lawyer buddy to harass us. After one letter, I spelled out why he had no case, but offered him a swift kick in the ass as a good faith settlement. It felt good to send that letter and to think about his lawyer showing it to him.
Lollipop165: Egoy3k: When the mere threat of legal action is enough to make a huge number of people back down due to fear of high legal costs, pro-bono attorneys talking smack to assholes who send groundless C&D letters is just fine with me.I work in real estate and building management and get "threatened" with legal action all the mother farking time. I have a lawyer on retainer (just in case) but once I explain to the threatening lawyer that I'm not scared, know real estate law, and have a lawyer on retainer should I need it, they always back down. The lawyer's career is that of dick wagging. Once they realize I'm not a farking idiot in this business they put their tails between their legs and run.
Somaticasual: Well said on the response. But, in fairness, that's among the least legalese legal letters (fake tm) I've ever seen (even with the "confusingly" part)
jst3p: Dear Jerk: There was this guy who stole my gal and I stole her backWhy would you want such a disloyal tramp back?
