MikeHuntSoft.com Sued Over Domain Name

By Brian Briggs

St. George, UT - Adult entertainment giant MCS Corp has filed a trademark infringement suit against software developer Mike Hunt over his mikehuntsoft.com domain name.

MCS Corp, known by their initials since the dot com bubble burst and "My Whatever" companies lost their appeal, kept their original domain name.

“I’m not giving up my domain without a fight,” said Hunt. “I have enough troubles with my name as it is and I don’t think anybody is going to confuse what’s on my site with what’s on theirs.”

MCS’s lawyers have a different view. “Mr. Hunt is clearly trying to take advantage of the brand that we’ve built, and we’re not going to let him get away with it. We are going to ride him hard, get stiff penalties imposed and squeeze every last drop out of him. He’s going down,” said MCS lawyer Anita Mann.

“We offered him $9.95 a month for a year to hand over the domain. We even gave him two weeks to decide, but he turned us down right away. He’s playing hardball,” continued Mann.

The proceedings could reach their climax next week when a federal judge will hear arguments from both sides. However, a pretrial hearing has been scheduled to see if the judge will allow MCS to display streaming video of the trial on their website.

Randy Palmer, a close friend of Mike, was surprised that his friend was challenging the lawsuit, “He doesn’t have much money, and usually, he’s such a pussy when it comes to conflicts. He’s showing some balls taking them on.”
