    The new name and setup is good. Especially considering that fighting cheesy chain schools AND certain massive corporations might be taking on too much. Best to stick with slamming crappy schools.

    However, not that it's at all related, but I will no longer buy the shakes at one fast food chain. After all, they suck anyway. However, I'm still gonna get fries from there once in a while. Frankly, they do make the best fast food fries. Not that it's related. Just my opinion.

    A little off topic, but aren't clowns creepy? ;)

    The mods and senior contributors know how much crap I've been through pretty much just to keep the site on the net.

    To put it in perspective, I've spent about $5K of my own money so far on this site, and haven't even generated enough T-shirt sales for the distributor to send me the minimum payment of $25. Not that I had any intentions whatsoever of using this site for a profit, but I had hoped to cover the costs a bit.

    The "nameless" company, mind you, has billions of dollars to throw at the court system, and has the ability to simply bankrupt anyone that tries to fight against them.

    This experience has shown me that unless you're a lawyer, your place in the legal system is pretty much determined by the ammount of money you can invest into your issue.

    After this, I'm seriously considering going to law school... hell, just to protect my own interests.

    By the way, here's an article about a similar situation:


    "McEverything

    Date: 15/07/2000

    While it is good sense to defend a well recognised brand name against those seeking to exploit it, McDonald's continues to take this principle to extremes.

    The US giant, favourite of gourmets across the world, has recently forced a small Swiss-based medical company, McWellness to change its name. Although the name had nothing to do with McDonalds - it was named after McKinsey, the management consultancy firm that its two founders once worked for - McDonald's lawyers insisted that the use of the name would 'create confusion...and will cause damage to (McDonald's) hard-earned goodwill'.

    This is not an exceptional case - McDonald's have sued a range of other businesses from a sausage stand in Denmark called McAllan's to McMunchies, a UK sandwich shop. They have also registered a range of non-food related trademarks including McTravel and (perhaps showing the extent of their ambitions) McSpaceStation.

    The case shows the importance of careful research before choosing a name for a new business - though McDonald's are unusually vigilant in deploying their array of lawyers to extend their rights to almost any McName anyone may choose.

    They have the resources to do this, of course. Or as The Economist said in reporting this story - where there's Mc, there's brass."

    Those McD...'s guys are making millions of dollars and they worry about alittle kick ass martial art site like this. How pathetic they are. Insecure sucks. Whats a matter McDojo is too competitive to them. Those guys should take a Mcfrenchfry and stick it up there arse! Or better yet go "shrimp" themselves with one of there straws.
    The law is crap!

    i am VERY surprised that they would waste thier time on a forum such as this one. no offense, but this forum will NEVER amount to anything.

    It will never offer anyone anything! look at the "CREW" of people that frequent it, the same old "JAMOKES" everyday.

    its no BIG loss.
