I don't get why Mr. Shine Your Light thought that this would actually work. And what did he think he'd actually get out of it? Did he think we'd bribe him to get back a trademark that he doesn't really own? Is he just being a knob-gobbler because he's a masochist that enjoys made idle legal threats and cracking people's bones. Seriously, what is he getting out of this??

Lulz?  Dunno--it's rather obvious this is a volunteer effort, so there's no $ in it.  Maybe PD.com got MF'd?  But it was a weak attempt if so.  Trolling the trolls usually ends up in burnt asscheeks.

Dear PrincipiaDiscordia.com:

While performing an Internet search, one of our employees discovered that you have started a publication that you are calling "Intermittens."  We urge you to stop.

"Intermittens" is a trademark of Shine Your Light, which is headquarted in Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada.  While your site was registered on 30 October of 2000 with Dreamhost in the United States, the earliest reference to Intermittens on your site appeared in 2008.  We registered the domain name "Intermittens.com" on 11 April of 2003, and renewed it on 28 September of 2007 to extend our ownership of the domain through 11 April of 2013.

It is very clear that we have the prior and current claim to the use of the name "Intermittens."  Because of general international agreements and specific treaties between the United States and Canada, any use of the name "Intermittens" without permission is a violation of Canadian and U. S. law.  Note that prior registration is not required for the filing of a lawsuit in regard to such ownership.  (Please consult Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), and Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights of the World Trade Organization (WTO)).

We do, however, wish to avoid the time and cost of bringing legal action against you, and assume you do not want it brought against you.  Therefore, if you will cease and desist from using the name "Intermittens" for your magazine or for any other publication, product, item, or any goods or service within a period of fourteen (14) days from this notice, we will accept that as compliance.

This shall be considered official notification, in accordance with Canadian and United States federal law.

If you have any questions, you may call our office at (604) 736-4743 or send us a Fax to (604) 224-5557.

the listed phone number has been busy for over an hour and a half.



still busy. At this point I'm fairly sure this is an "always busy" number


does anybody else miss phreaking?  :lulz: An always busy number is a great front door for a scam.

Heh! great idea. Also this means I can use the letter and I'll pick up a couple of spare "allusions to #4" in the process. I'll have my issue done in no time  :D

I hope... it looks like a form letter that would apply if we were registering a Domain Name that conflicted with theirs. ICANN has no jurisdiction on the name of our online magazine.

Either its a troll, a dumb squatter or ... well that seems to be the options.

I'm hoping it's a troll for the lulz, but more likely it's a dumb squatter. All the more reason, by the way, that someone should register Intermittens as a business name ASAP. I'll pitch in $10... I think it costs $50 in Oregon, no idea what it costs elsewhere. Just to solidify the case against them and fuck them in the ass so they CAN'T use the name later on, for being dicks.  :lulz:
