    Monster Cable is at it again firing up litigation against a Mini Golf franchise called Monster Mini Golf. Giant Monster Cable has already burdened Monster Mini Golf with nearly $100k in legal fees and it looks like there is no end in sight. This personally touches home to me as one of their mini golf facilities happens to be in my neck of the woods in New Port Richey, Florida. I can’t fathom the idea that a cable company would contend that a mini-golf operator is infringing its trademarks on a line of audio and video cables, and would go so far as to bring this kind of frankly silly litigation as a result. Mediation is set for this Wednesday and we wish Monster Mini Golf the best of luck in their noble fight.

    Good Luck to Mini Monter

    It's unbelievable that people actually have nothing better to do than to sue everyone, for no real reason.
    If it was a life or death situation, like I'm used to seeing everyday, it would be a different story. It's done with no other people to enrich what's alredy over done.
    Good luck to Monster Mini Golf and fight hard to win your case.

    I think the bottom line is if enough consumers rally against these bully tactics, companies won't continue to persue them without the fear that they will lose their business. Of course I am not condoning such an action, just stating a personal belief :D

    Tried to submit one and b/c I'm referencing the same URL as you or someone else referenced, they won't allow duplicates. Here's the URL, but I haven't seen it show up as a story yet, just when I tried to do my submission:
