You know, I’m starting to feel unloved here. All around me people are being sued by Zuffa, yet I haven’t even been contacted by their lawyers. I got really excited yesterday when someone served me with papers, but that was just about something between Loretta Hunt and me. Something private. And sexual. And possibly federal.
Today’s lawsuit (or rather last week’s … sorry I’ve been dealing with a bad rash) involves the website UFCTakedown.com. Apparently the naughty boys over there were posting up youtube and dailymotion videos of UFC fights. And while there’s nothing technically illegal about that, there’s also apparently nothing illegal about crushing small websites with the threat of a long and expensive lawsuit either.
So on account of all those murky linking laws and murky intellectual property laws, UFCTakedown.com decided to move over to MMATakedown.net where the UFC’s team of lawyers will obviously never find them again. They aren’t the only ones who have packed up their bags and moved off their UFC URLs … UFC Countdown is now Fight Countdown and of course UFC Junkie is now known as MMA Junkie. No word on if I get a refund for my UFCJunkie.com shirt, which I now just use as a doggie-pad for my Collie when she’s on her period.
Me? I’m getting a bit pissed off that I can’t get a fucking lawsuit thrown my way. So we’ll be moving to UFCLinker.com this weekend. Well, we would be if the UFC stopped fucking around and crushed the rest of their competition. Just like in Highlander, there can only be one. Until then I guess we’ll just stay here and think of more inventive ways to get sued. Maybe if we started talking shit about Xyience?
