Default Little Guy VS. Godzilla literally

Hey Brethren,

There is a little rodside 'Q joint in Damariscotta, Maine with some legal issues.

In support of them (I do not know them nor have I ever eaten there), I felt I should post the following link to an article about the company that owns the rights to Godzilla suing this little joint because they call themselve Grillzilla. Can you say RIDICULOUS.

http://www.pressherald.com/news/mons...010-08-08.html.

The link to this roadside restaurant is in the article.

Wonder how Mozilla gets away with it? They are an internet browser company who makes Firefox and Thunderbird.

Huh?

A number of years ago there was a bar somewhere around here called "Jeep's" and Chrysler asked the owner to change the name (it was his nickname IIRC) even though he'd been using it since long before Chrysler bought AMC. I remember a few rumblings about possible legal action but can't recall what the final outcome was.

If I was the grill owner I'd say go ahead and sue me, then represent myself or look for an attorney aspiring for political office to do the case pro-bono. Odds are that even if the court agreed with the plaintiff, all that would happen is they'd be ordered to discontinue use. In order to be awarded any kind of damages the Godzilla people would have to prove that their brand was financially harmed in some way. That would be a huge stretch.

It's become a sorry situation when mega corp with their legal teams can stifle American entrepreneurship.

We rent a cabin on Damariscotta Lake. What a beautiful area.
I'll have to look for Grill Zilla next summer when we go back.

I'd tell them to bring it on. You can't trade mark a pre-fix. Zilla? What about the word Cola? Frivolous Farkin attorneys.
