    Monster/Hansen's Suing Brewer

    It looks like Monster/Hansen's has been going after a Brewer for naming their beer "Vermonster."

    They also are going after a beverage review site. Is it for a bad review?

    What do you guys think? I am all for protecting intellectual property, but can you really take it this far?

    Complete ********. First off, the 2 products and names are very remotely similar. Noone would ever get them confused or think that one was related to the other. I lived in VT for 10 years and I've been to this brewery. They are a small operation with a good product.

    Yeah, I don't know what the deal is with Monster. Maybe they are losing market share and are going after people willy-nilly.
