Crawdad, it's like this.
We have a pretty good sized web site here. Between the main THO site, the forums, and the store, we get well over 2 million hits per month.
So if they want to make an issue out of you using that name, we'll just publish their letters or e mails and how they are whooping up on us little guys on the main web site, the store site, and I'll make a banner that will link to the story on the main site from the forums.
So the choice is this. Let a little guy who lives a 1000 or more miles from you continue to use a name he has been using for years and maybe lose 2 or 3 sales a year because of it, or, make an issue out of it we'll do our best to see you lose a 1000 sales a year because guys get to read what a schmuck you are.
And that is not a bluff. Ask Larry at Prairie Game Calls. When the crook from Vermont threatened to copy Larry's pot call dimensions and mold his own call line off of them, we posted that on the main site for a good 6 months. His e mails everything. I don't have a problem doing it again.
I really don't like bullies. Or Knight and Hale but that's another story
