Re: What's Going On: Changes to Come

What confuses me is, this alleged thingamagic that is "using" the phrase "down in front" in connection to movie commentaries? I mean, you are sure this is not you from the future or someting, coz, Google surely finds no other "Down In Fronts" than thyselves?

Re: What's Going On: Changes to Come

I found a thing on Youtube, some video talking about movies, dating back to 2007. Maybe that was it?

I still don't buy that someone has even actually trademarked it (as opposed to thinking they have ownership over the name because they did a thing with that name years ago), let alone thinks they have a case against you, because 1) they've not defended their trademark for at least 3 years, 2) they don't appear to be using their trademark, and 3) they shouldn't have been granted the trademark in the first place.

EDIT - I would suppose that it's this show - Down in Front with Dana Carvey, available on Netflix.

It doesn't look like it's an ongoing show, or something that has had anything new in the last 5 years, so... yeah...

Exactly. Just rename it Famous Original Teague's Down in Front, and it's all good.

I wonder if they could just call it Digital Lama Radio.  Of course, they'd have to get permission from Chris.  That name is pretty catchy though.

If you do a search on the US Trademark site http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/gate.exe?f=s … :jtl32.1.1 of Down in Front, you do indeed find a live patent.

Also, curiosity got the better of me and I reverse-whois-domain-looked up ya'll and saw the new name and I would like to be the first to say that I approve.  tongue  Good solid choice.

Re: What's Going On: Changes to Come

So, any idea when we can expect an official announcement?

Teague's special move is he reaches into a bag, pulls out Tesla the cat and throws it at you. The counter attack to this is to save the cat.

Brian's special move is he blinds you with science. The counter attack to this is Spider-Man 2, for he can never understand it and its acclaim.

Dorkman's special move is he strikes an inappropriate, sexy Black Widow pose, making you uncomfortable until you forfeit. The counter attack to this is to charge at him with a giant hypodermic needle.

Trey's special move is to be muscular, aggressive and busy at you. The counter attack to this is THIIIIGHS! (a James Cameron mask is also acceptable).

What about the special guests?

I too refuse to resort to sneaky underhanded tricks to figure out the new name ahead of time.

Mostly because I have no idea how.

Thanks and good find Bathilda. That amazes me, someone actually gave it to them... Still, their case wouldn't hold up in court. Quite aside from the fact that they've not defended their trademark, they've not maintained their right either - their "Down In Front Radio Network" is for all intents and purposes dead, with no shows since late 2008 and no current availability or activity. It's effectively abandoned. Further, it looks like it's a free show so it's not like they can claim damages. And without damages, no court or legal people are going to be interested.
