WE’VE BEEN SERVED! It happened to us! I guess all the saber rattling over the last few days has spooked big beer, and we got a Cease and Desist letter from the attorneys at Dewey, Chetham, & Howe, Big Beer’s go to attorneys for squashing little guys like us. I can’t share all the particulars under penalty of death or worse taxes, but here is a quote from the memo that pretty much sums things up:
The law firm of Dewey, Chetham, and Howe have been retained by “Big Beer” (not really what it said) in the matter of The Beer and Whiskey Brother’s Blog. We are hereby ordering the Beer and Whiskey Brothers (aka Don and Jim) to cease and desist all blogging activity as it relates to beer or any other malted or distilled beverage. We are of the opinion that this blog is slanderous to our clients and puts them in a bad light when they are simply acting in a capacity to improve their overall market share (shooting for 100% here) in a very competitive product space. Furthermore we request a hand written, signed and notarized letter of apology to “Big Beer” for hurting their feelings and making them feel bad about their corporate practices.
There you have it, we’re gone! Another casualty of “Big Beer.” But don’t worry, Jim and I have always had an idea for a sports blog that we are just dying to dive into. You can find us at http://www.CricketAndBocceBros.com. Happy April everyone! 😉
