Monster Cable, an Audio/ Video cable specialist is attempting to takeover the domain name and use of the word "Monster" for many websites around the globe. Monster Cable has filed a Federal Lawsuit to take over the website www.Monstervintage.com. Monster Cable claims that we (Monster Vintage) do not have the right to use the word "MONSTER", a word used to emphasize our large selection of used vintage clothing. Attorneys for Monster Cable reported to the court fraudulent signatures to sneak thru the Federal Court system and take over www.Monstervintage.com., putting us out of business and stealing our domain name. Currently, the Monster Cable Corp. is in a number of legal battles over the word usage of "Monster", including a recent one with San Francisco's own, Candlestick Park.

Monstervintage.com is a very small cottage business established during the summer of 2001, which sells classic All-American, used vintage clothing. We (Monster Vintage) would like to know how our business threatens a 300 Million dollar a year cable company?
We have started the legal procedures necessary to fight this battle, and would love to share our story with a number of media outlets to show how some big corporations try to strong-arm smaller businesses into submission.
We look forward to hearing back from ANYONE with some info, and an interest in helping us fight big corporations welding too much power for their own good. We (Monster vintage) can be reached at:
