Best Buy VS. NewEgg over Use of GEEK…

 

NL- Best Buy sent NewEgg esentially a cease & desist over the use of their colors, logos, GEEK, and parody of their employees in a commercial. NeeEgg, being the “hip” online store that they are posted the paperwork at their site. I think that’s a good move on their part. Makes Best Buy look  like a bunch of big babies. Here’s part of the letter. You can see the whole thing, along with some interesting comment on NewEgg’s Facebook page, here http://www.facebook.com/   

The commercial they are talking about shows a kid in a blue shirt answering the question “What is the difference between these two computers?” with “I dunno.”   You can see it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYk0dQrz3uc&feature=youtu.be

(What does this have to do with porn you may ask? Nothing that I see, I just thought it was interesting. But you know what? Seems like everything actually does have a connection to porn in some way, kind of like 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon… If any of you want to play with it and find the connection please feel free to go for it.)
