This is a re-post from another forum, but I thought it important, and couldn't locate a similar thread here on APC.

MFK and all of MAN need your help!
Recently, we received a notice that we are being sued for breach of copyright and were given a cease and desist letter for both the word "Monster" and our logo, the "monster M", despite the fact that the trademarks have been registered since 2005. Please take a minute to visit the blog that has been started and read to find out what you can do to help.
Li is a long time club member and has always been a huge personal supporter of CCA. He needs us now.
As you know, Li (neoprodigy) is also a massive supporter of the hobby, from donating funds and supplies to conventions to maintaining our series of free networks for fishkeepers of all kinds all over the world. His influence and support of the hobby should be legendary, and he has always maintained his sites at no cost to our members.
The network does not have the money for a lengthy legal battle and the future of the forums could be at risk. I would like to thank any of you that take the time to send emails, phone calls, or letters in our defense.
To reiterate, additional information and explanation can be found on the blog that has been set up at the following address: http://support.monsterfishkeepers.com/
