Dear Mr. Shkolnik:
We want to apologize for any inconvenience we may have caused you with our
pending lawsuit against your company and monster.biz. As you may know from
reading our site, Monster Cable was started by an entrepreneur, Noel Lee,
who was himself a musician. He built up the Monster brand name from nothing,
with nothing, 23 years ago and has achieved famous name status. He has taken
the brand to mean high quality and high performance, which shows in the
products that we make. As your attorney might inform you, to protect Mr.
Lee's famous name from dilution, he needs to litigate against any
infringers, no matter what the field of business. So our attorneys are
instructed to litigate and oppose all trademarks and URLs that use the
In conference with Mr. Lee, he shares your entrepreneurial spirit, and he
has instructed our attorneys to drop the lawsuit - without relinquishing any
of our rights to the name - and go after others who may be diluting the
brand name more.
You may call him on his personal cell phone line if you like at xxx.xxx.xxxx
or email him at email@example.com.
Feel free to call me as well at xxx.xxx.xxxx if you would like to discuss
the issues further.
We wish you Monsterous success with your business.
Chief Operating Monster
