Just read this on Consumerist. This is a Monster Cable web site http://www.monstercable.com/monster_truth/ about the Monster Mini Golf lawsuit. From Monster Cable’s point of view.
It’s a pretty pathetic read. They sued another company in another area of business because they used the word Monster in their business name. That’s it, it’s about over aggressive trademark protection.
I once bought a set of Monster cables and considered myself gouged. Now if I need an HDMI cable, I look for one that is less than $20. I’ve had both and I do not see a difference. The fact that they sue other companies doesn’t really make me inclined to buy another product from them again.
