The Nasty Letter

Pirates & Privacy

Lawyers angry
with Telewest...
Threaten US !

 
Editorial Opinion
The Billionaires' Club



In this letter, Telewest attorney Simon Read falsely asserts that Telewest seeks no claim to our Trademarked Name, BLUE YONDER ®.

The terms of the "Purchase Agreement", signed by Telewest's Marketing Director, Philip Jansen, clearly disallow our use of our Trade Name and all of the BLUEYONDER Domain Name variants we own.

Read gets testy with us because: (1) We won't sell. (2) The April Fools Day cartoon I posted here when I discovered that Telewest's staff and partners were using our domain for their email addresses.

Telewest's Simon Read's Nasty Letter




1.
Telewest Attorney Simon Read, who registered Domain Name Variants of BLUEYONDER for Telewest under his own name, disguising Telewest's involvement, makes an unbelievable assertion.

Read, representing Telewest et. al., acknowledges our Trademark Rights. He says Telewest doesn't want our Trademark, but Telewest's contract says it does.
Read then insists we sign their contract as it stands or the price drops dramatically.




2.
No Sense of humor.
I just asked Telewest Marketing Director Philip Jansen if a free lifetime high speed connection was a possibility, since they owned the internet backbone, and all... Not a chance, sez Telewest Phil.

I see that Telewest's staff and partners are using our blueyonder.com in their email addresses to conduct Telewest business.

So, April Fools Day rolls around, and I post a cartoon ;->
See a smaller version of the "blueahab" satirical cartoon below.

Telewest threatens me, uses my name, copies my logotype, buries me in unwanted email and viruses, then has it's Attorney Simon Reed get pissy with me for posting a satirical cartoon.

Isn't the irony grand?



Blue Ahab Lifetime Connectivity Satirical Cartoon

This is a small, and somewhat fuzzy version, of the April Fools 2000 cartoon
we posted on BLUEYONDER.COM. We even got fan mail on this cartoon.



Satire, Parody and Fair Use:
"A parody must convey two simultaneous and contradictory messages:
that it is the original, but also, that it is not the original and is instead a parody."
