Of all the groups I play around in, if any were to be hit by a cease and desist letter, I wouldn't think it would be the online knitting social network
. I mean I realize that Ravelypics and Olympic Games might get confused. I mean one contains great feats of athletic prowess. The other contains prowess pertaining to yarn. Of course as a member of a group that denigrates the gallant athletes, I probably don't understand how insulting I am to all the actual sponsors like Dow Chemical, Coca-Cola and P&G. I mean my knitted socks with an ring pattern might impede theirs sales. The horror.
The best part, the USOC 'apologized'
for the letter and asked us to make them free stuff to
give away to athletes.
The moral: when a group of people claim to be over 2 million strong, that is not income potential. That is a group of people you may not want to belittle and piss off. *waves her dpns in defiance*
