Actually, what they say is "If, however, you do not comply with these
requests, Twitter will be forced to consider suspending your Twitter
accounts and take such steps as it deems necessary to protect its
intellectual property rights".

In short, we are asking you to stop selling your product and give us the
name (btw: they can't demand you give them the name, they can't even force
you to give them the name, they can offer to buy it though at fair "trade

As I said before, there are LOTS of legal presidencies on this type of
action and what can and can't be done.  In no manor do they suggest that
they will or are going to sue you if you don't comply.  They do say they
will suspend your accounts (acceptable).  They could suspend any users
suspect of using your product (actually, easily enough).  Sue you, doubt it.

If you don't want to stop selling, don't want to hand it over carte blanche,
or are just plain willing to stand against them, then talk to a lawyer.  One
other note, not sure when you ACTUALLY received the letter, but in the US 30
days written notice is required.  According to the letter dates given they
have provided only 12.

PS: I'm no lawyer, but I've been around the block a few times and seen this
"letter of action" many times before (from both ends).  The only answers are
"Get a lawyer" or "Give up".  Its your choice.

know of) (parked at godaddy LOL and not mine)
