Re: Cease and Desist!

First off, this guy has no idea what he is talking about, since you
cannot copyright a company name, although you can trademark it.  Just
because he has named his company does not automatically infer
protection on that name.  

Due to his ignoprant statement, I doubt that he has actually
registered his company name in his home county, much less at the state
level.  He is not elligible for trademark protection until he has done
interstate commerce (meaning the sale of goods or services across
state lines), and ebven then, he must file for it after a search, and
the protection is only in the areas he registered it under.  

His statements show that he does not know what he is talking about.  I
suspect he made up a company name, but has not obtained the required
state or federal taxpayer ID number for a corporation, much less
registered a trademark.

If you really want to goose him, register the trademark yourself, and
the sue him!  This has been done before: re the great case of Bonanza
steak houses vs Ponderosa steak houses.
