Blue Jeans Cable CEO Responds to Legal Threat From Monster Cable

Hilarious response to an apparently bogus big-company-stomping-on-little-company cease and desist:

Dear Monster Lawyers,

Let me begin by stating, without equivocation, that I have no interest whatsoever in infringing upon any intellectual property belonging to Monster Cable. Indeed, the less my customers think my products resemble Monster’s, in form or in function, the better.[…]

It looks like when you sent this letter, you were operating on the premise that I am not smart enough to see through your deceptions or sophisticated enough to intelligently evaluate your claims; shame on you. You are required, as a matter of legal ethics, to display good faith and professional candor in your dealings with adverse parties, and you have fallen miserably short of your ethical responsibilities.

Via Metafilter, where plenty of commenters attest to the quality of Blue Jeans’s products.
