      If you really want to hurt Monster, take all of the Monster cable that you have, tie it in a big knot and drag it behind your car for a week. Then bring it into your local Monster carying store and demand your replacements. Repeat this process until you feel better.

      Monster intentionally inflates their prices to cover the average replacement of every cable they make. I rely on this fact when I buy Monster cable. I run a DJ and Karaoke business, and when some drunk jerk wants to yank wires, or play hopscotch when I'm breaking down, I don't worry. I know Monster will give me a new cable, no questions asked.

      Should they be going after other companies for using the name "Monster?" Hell no! What's next? Oh.... That old Godzlilla movie (A Sandy Frank Production) (thats what you get when you drop your hotdog at the beach) (shut up Servo!) can't use the term Monster... he's just a scary beast now... get f'n real!

      What Judge in their right mind is going to award Monster with damages? If anything monster.com will file a countersuit and win. As I understand it, trademark infractions only pertain to like industries. Last time I checked, the nations biggest job website doesn't make high-end audiophile cable. I'm pretty sure that Disney isn't in that business either.

        Wow, as I'm doing some research, I see it's really true.. wow.. that's some ****ed up ****. They should change their name to "Mobster" instead of "Monster"

          It doesn't even matter. If a business has to bankrupt itself to defend itself, they've [Monster] won.

          What Monster is trying to do is extort money from small businesses - if they can't pay "protection" then they get their legs broken, just like the mob does.

            just kick the people when the get out of court really really hard. That would make them think twice.

            Ok so any ways do you think my idea will work?

            Oh wait it wouldnt work they would have to have their name trademarked too huh?

              Although Monster Cable is good stuff, you can get better quality by switching to XLR anyway. I am converting all of the "A/V" cords in my car to either XLR or BNC, they are much better in the way the carry the signal. the adapters aren't too expensive, go to a straight music, or similar store and they usually carry them.

                As I said in the other post. I would rather use hay wire wrapped in Duct Tape than buy their product.

                  yeah monster sucks balls. lifetime replacement doesn't justify the overpriced crappy cables they sell.

                  here's a thread at AVS Forum about this: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...hreadid=489297

                  and a Govt site listing all their lawsuits (sems to be down ATM): http://ttabvue.uspto.gov/ttabvue/v?q...roducts&page=1

                  but it looks like they patched things up with snow monsters: http://www.snowmonsters.com/monstercable/



                  P.S. ... 'sew' is what you do when you use thread to attach pieces of fabric ... not what you do when you take someone to court.
