    Yeah thanks Blossom - It's not my niche, but it still made for some interesting reading from the reply/comments section.

    I particularly liked this post.

    Interesting post, yes. But the huge fan comment is transparent bollocks, simply added to his post to dilute his guilt. This cunt of a story is what leads to chavvy copiers getting their arses kicked!

    True Anthony - But, sometimes theres a right and a wrong way about anything.

    I don't agree or condone TM infringement in any shape or style - as my posts on Acorn reflect. However, Sometimes the bad guy gets to win... I thought it enlightening (of the original poster) to make a post that goes against the 'legal-grain'

    As he clearly states (being at the top of Google) gave them (The TM holder) a successful outlet built on his own admiration (and words and page design) for the product. I somehow doubt many TM infringers could claim the same

    Again as he says he could have lost it all in a day - I just thought it read as a different side to a coin that is actually out there and inplay. TM holders may well look at constructive well thought out pieces as enhancing their business model on occasions...

    Sometimes looking at both sides of a guilded coin can actually instill a possible market concept, that as you say is by far and away abused... This example showed it Dosen't have to be all 'link-crap' I think (on the face of it) this company got itself a PR guru for nothing

    * of course I'm taking the original posters comments at face value in this instance

    I fully agree Bailey, it is an interesting post, but he's very much a lucky gazelle to have hood-winked a lion. What bothers me is the mere mention of retaining a $x,xxx revenue stream on a gamble is only likely to encourage other misguided perps down the same path.

    I'm with you on that - shame there isn't a lower "age-limit" come "legal awareness test" attached to domain registrations - then all in the garden would be Rosy..:D
