An Unanswered Letter to Diane M. Reed

Dear Diane,

It’s come to my attention that you are representing the Hansen Beverage Company as they go after Rock Art Brewery over their use of “Vermonster,” since your client has a trademark on the term “Monster.” I’m no intellectual property lawyer, but it seems to me that this Matt Nadeau guy seems a little shifty. I mean, why would he want to use your client’s name if he wasn’t trying to confuse people into buying his beer!

You get ‘em!

Also, just a cursory glance at my beer shelf shows you’ll have no end to such lawsuits. Talk about job security!

I made you a handy list. You can cross them off as you go:

    Terrapin Big Hoppy Monster
    Terrapin Big Sloppy Monster
    Great Lakes The Lake Erie Monster Double IPA
    Brooklyn Monster Ale
    Sea Monster Stout
    Green Monster Beer
    Lilja’s Hop Nest Monster
    Gila Monster Amber Lager
    Monster Mash Porter
    Mikkels Monster
