The address given by 'Shine Your Light' and the Chiropractor don't match

Has SYL just used the phone number of the office for yuks?

I've seen stuff like this before. I had a scam e-mail that said it was from a London law firm. The law firm did exist but the e-mail address was for some store in the U.S.

What makes it so? Making it so is what makes it so.

WE GOT TROLLED
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

yeah and Kai nailed it down in his first post.

what I know from trademark law is that first, you need to make a vested effort into establishing your trademark. you can't secretly register the trademark and then kick the first person to use it. especially not if you just register a domain name that you don't do anything with.
and even then, they need to show we're competitors. if they have a tomato-paste brand named Intermittens, they got nothing, cause we make a magazine. So they'd either need to attach their brand to a magazine, or to discordia/philosophy or counterculture in general. If they did that, and had the name Intermittens, more power to them btw :-)

and I'm all for using this letter to allude to issue 4 in issue 5.

I'm disappointed that SYL hasn't come back to answer our questions.  Maybe he'll log back in after the 14 days are up.

If no Intermittens editor has claimed it already, I'd like to use this for Intermittens #7: Operation Mindfuck.

We got Jaked!  :argh!:  :lulz:


EDIT: Just noticed, this was already claimed for Issue 6 by P3nT4gR4m at http://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum/index.php?topic=19570.msg652652#msg652652  :sad:

Well, technically it hasn't been a full 14 days yet.  Give him a couple more hours.  He might come back and sue this forum to the ground.   :scared:
