If you’re unfamiliar with pop culture conventions, they are places where fans gather to escape from their everyday lives, have fun, met celebrities, and most importantly gather with people with similar interest. Usually, these events are 3 days long lasting anywhere from 8 to 12 hours. With so much cool stuff happening, many turn to energy drinks such as Monster Energy to get an extra dose of caffeine so they can enjoy the many aspects of these events.
In a ridiculous turn of events, the corporate giant (Monster Energy Drinks) has lost its mind and thinks it owns the word “Monster” by going after the Mad Monster Party convention. The company is claiming that the word “Monster” will create confusion between the brands (insert laugh track).
As a big fan of capitalism myself, this is the kind of stuff that makes the system look bad. Instead of concentrating on providing the best events possible, the Mad Monster staff now has to fend off these ridiculous accusations.
Let me close with a few other questions:
Does this company also have the right to ask Godzilla to change his name since he is dubbed king of the “monsters?”
Does the company also own the word “energy” and “drinks?”
