We received news today of a lawsuit by Monster against Beats. While I have no idea of the merits of these claims, this event has finally given me an excuse to link the second most entertaining letter I’ve ever read between two lawyers. A few years ago Monster issued a cease and desist letter to Blue Jeans Cables, a company founded by a recovering IP attorney. The response starts, “Dear Monster Lawyers” and just gets better from there.
In case you are wondering, James Bailey’s letter on behalf of the Cleveland Browns is the best attorney letter I’ve ever read.
