Rock Art had the name trademarked in Vermont, this ordeal arose when they filed for a national trademark because they wanted to grow and distrubute outside of new england. This perked the ears at Monster and they are making a case by claiming that they could possibly enter the alcohol market.
Please do not buy Monster. This is terrible business practices of stepping on somebody smaller because you can. Pearl St Beverage in Burlington and Beverage Warehouse in Winooski have already pulled all monster off their shelves (In winooski it was their best selling energy drink) They also pulled all coolers and marketing materials from monster!
Here is the facebook group.
And here is a letter that Monster released in its defense.
thats retarded. i hate when big companies sue smaller ones just because of how greedy they are.
