Default Rock Art Brewery VS Corporate Energy Drink

This video seemed interesting. A Vermont based brewery that produced a beer called the "VerMonster" was given a cease and desist back in September from the energy drink company "Monster" just because monster was in the beer's name. Another example of of how big corporations are able to push around the little guy and/or put them out of business. Makes me glad I never bought monster in the first place and I'll never do so in the future..

Watch the video :

Sucks that is happening to him.

I actually like the name Vermontster better and they couldn't say crap about that one.

I wish they sold it up here but I watched another clip about them and he said it only is distributed close to the Brewery. No where in Michigan. Can't hurt to look though.

I think it's crap that Monster would do something like that. I've never liked Energy drinks, especially monster. It makes me sick when A kid will come on my bus with one at 7:15 AM. It's just not a good way to start the day.

Glad I saw this, I will never buy another Hansen's product again. It's too bad because I was a fan of Java Monster.

Well, I wont be sad to say I'm not buying any of their drinks ever again. Didn't really care for them that much anyways.

I cant stand all these companies that seem to really believe they hold all rights to the use of a fucking WORD.


Monster.

Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster-Monster.

Yeah, I said it. Sue me.

I'm glad to hear that. I can't believe there is a Business (who they contracted out) that makes money off of this kind of stuff. That's the people that we need to get rid of. They are making money by making the little guy have to work harder. That's like a 5th grade bully.
