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
“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
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
“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.”
