Metallica suing someone again.

#1
This furniture company in Waco, Texas got a letter from Metallica's lawyer threatning to sue them if they didnt change the name of there store. Now this is just riduculous the store said he is a huge fan of theres but will change the name cause he cant believe a small store like his would be seen as trouble to the rock giants. Metallica is going to far what the fuck they got something against there fans now or something. Hey M22 you better consider changing your screen name before Metallica sees it and sends you a letter from there lawyer.

Jesus Christ! Do you know that there's a chain of steakhouses called Charlie Brown's? You see Charles Schultz didn't sue of over that!

Hell, the software company Acclaim Entertainment! Plymouth makes a car called the Acclaim! Again, there was no lawsuit!

*chants Metallica sold out*

Metallica is a registered name, it's their name and they do whatever they want with it. The same thing happened with a company that was making this perfumes called Metallica, they made them changed it. Personally I think they are doing the right thing. Furniture does not represent what metallica does. Metallica plays music, and they didn't think that what metallica was being represented when that brand of perfumes that smelled like some king of flower was put out, and even with furniture. Jay imagine someone selling a brand of nice expencive candles named eminem candles. He wouldn't like that because it doesn't not represent what he stands for.

Fuck Metallica i dont buy that excuse M22. I think you are just sticking up for them cause there your fav band. I think its fucked up what they are doing to there fans. I can see them getting pissed if there name is being used in bad terms but in this case it wasnt the plain and simple fact was it was a big fan of theres like you who just named his small unheard of business till now after the his fav band. Metallica has sold out they have gone corporate they are hypocrites.

what i'm trying to say is that they can do whatever they want with their name. Trying using the name of YOUR favorite band as a brand name. I bet they as soon they find out they will make sure you get rid of it. Metallica owns their name and if they don't get some kind of profit they will not let you use it. It's that simple we live in a capitalist society and money it's what matters. Look around people money is what matters around here.

The product is not named Metallica im not sure what the exact name of the furniture company is but the name of the store has nothing to do with the product. Metallica has enough money that fan named the store in tribute to them.

How bout Popeyes Fried Chicken has nothing to do with the cartoon character do you see the creator of Popeye getting all pissed no.
 
#11
i'm pretty sure that the person that owns the popeye character is getting money for it, but the point is that if you are gonna make money from the name Metallica, the band metallica wants money from you. It's simple, if you are making money from me, i want part of it.

Ah screw it what is the point you are brainwashed by this group. You just dont get it man. I know you have to pay money to use copyrighted materials. The point is Metallica has just shown us another example of them being hypocrites.
