Hi. I have a rather innocent question. There were two people who posted commercial websites today that contained the word MONSTER in the url and in the business name. Both sites also feature a mascot that is obviously a "monster". Now we all know major company monster, that owns monsterjobs, and many other monsterXXX URL companies.
Doesn't it strike you as daring, and perhaps foolish, businesswise, to even attempt to create a site with that name and featuring such a mascot? Although I am sure your intention were not to do so, but when I saw your site to me it appeared you are attempting to mimic their likeness for commercial gain. I myself would never do this, as I am positive they could easily win a case of doing so.
I was wondering why someone would actually do such a thing and put the business (and yourself if you're not inc'ed) in such legal danger?
In fact, if you go to http://monsterhosting.com/ you will see they are soon to launch a business with an identical URL, and if you go to monsterjobs.com you will see their well-known monster mascot.

Well actually we have our Business Name registered and our logo copyright. I'm not sure what Monster.com can do about it. We picked this name because it was easy to remember. Our logo and branding looks nothing like Monster.com. I would prefer if you wish to continue this conversation that your contact me at email@example.com
