It's a lose/lose situation: the guy gets publicity for his brand that won't exist anymore and PSU gets to remind people that it will attempt to stop copyright infringement, but not a child rapist.

I knew a guy who owned a company called "Acura" something. He got a cease and desist letter from Honda of America. He told his lawyer that he registered the trademark long before Honda registered Acura in the US. His lawyer told him three things: 1) I can fight it 2) You will pay me me a lot of money and we will lose so 3) Just change the name

Semi related. The only time I've used Twitter was to tell a musician that PSU was using one of his songs in their commercial - and the name of the song was "Kids On the Run", which seemed like a poor choice. They used it without permission.

Hypocrites.
