Despair Trademarks :-(

from the lawsuits-galore! dept

For three straight years I've made sure to buy the calendar and hang it above my desk. Now comes news that has trademarked the :-( emoticon. They say they're now going to sue 7 million internet users. Funny stuff. Come and get me, you bastards! :-( :-( :-(

    Re: No Subject Given

    Never, ever, take seriously.

    Though, it would be fun if they sued me. I'd like to meet those guys.
