They taste kinda like baby powder but I'm literally going to walk across the street and buy a Monster energy drink right now just to spite this thread.

Hahah.. you're supposed to call him up and order up his beer.

I think that changing a name and a "brand" isn't really that big of a deal. He should just change the name, alert all his customers, and re-market it with a new name. Sucks, but thats just the way it is.

Sad story though. We should shoot flamethrowers that are machine guns at Monster, inc.

Someone should stick Monster Cable onto Monster Energy Drink and let them go at it. They've sued everyone else with "Monster" in their name from Monster.com to mini golf courses. I'm actually surprised they haven't gone after the energy drink co.

If I were him I'd write a nice letter just like the the guy from Blue Jeans cables or whatever that other cable company was telling them in not so many words to go fuck themselves.

Monster sucks anyway - it's loaded with cancerous sucralose. Rockstar or Red Bull FTW.

Dude seems pretty cool, too bad he can't keep his name. I'm not too sure what the legalities of his name are, it IS pretty similar to Monster, but that appeal system seems like the scam of all scams. There are so many problems with our legal system, this is just one small aspect of it.

Monster tastes like crap anyway, like you needed a reason not to drink it. I've had a few of the beers from Rock Art, very good. I wonder what kind of premium bottles of Vermonster will go for now in the Microbrew Trade World....not kidding.

Agree on this. He's so passionate about it - he even looks close to tears at some points, but it's clearly a very clever marketing angle at the same time. How many of us will remember that digeridoo guy logo after seeing the video and associate it with a beer from vermont that fought monster.

Monster is being assholes but they are protecting a possible sideline. They might get into beer with supplements or something. They think they need to smash anyone that gets near them.

OMG, when did they let people trademark basic words like.. Windows, Apple and Orange?

I feel sorry for this guy and Monster sucks. However if he is going to waste time and money fighting this, after he already knows what he's up against, I have zero sympathy for him.

I would love to actually read the C&D letter and see how Monter's attorneys extrapolate a "likelihood of confusion" between Monster energy drinks and Vermontster Micro-brewed beer with a very small distribution range. That has got to be a legal STRETCH if ever there was one. Nevermind that the logos, slogan, etc. are nothing alike.

On the other hand- this is a Miniature Golf place I've seen out by Pittsburgh that appears to all but COPY Monster's logo. No C&D for them? Welcome to Monster Mini Golf

this is going to be a great viral for this guy - I'm going to stop buying Monster because of it.

Yea Monster is just being a dick because they can. Thanks to the power of the internet this guy's case can go viral and people can take action.

On the other hand- this is a Miniature Golf place I've seen out by Pittsburgh that appears to all but COPY Monster's logo. No C&D for them? Welcome to Monster Mini Golf
I'm guessing they are the mini golf that Monster Cables sued.

Same thing happened to me with a domain recently. At least he wasn't being charged anything up front like I was. (extortion)
I'm in the process of transferring it to the corporation this week.

I took one sip of Monster Energy Drink ages ago and fucking hated it. I don't know if it's the fact that it's like 90% corn syrup swill, but at least red bull uses real sugar.

Fight the power.

And I'll probably get my beer store to order his stuff. I can love me a bold barley wine every once in awhile.
