Monster Snow Job

Monster Cable is trying to stem the tide of public criticism it has received for its aggressive litigation tactics and claims that it owns the word “monster” virtually in gross with this. How many distortions of trademark law can you spot? Just for starters, Monster Cable may “have been awarded 100 registered Monster trademarks in 12 different classes by the Patent and Trademark office” but I’ll bet most of them are pretty darn weak from a consumer recognition standpoint. I hope Monster Mini Golf holds its ground against this oppressive form of trademark bullying.
