Nice work losers

The Aggies filed two complaints against four Bills fans for using the trademark in their website, 12thManThunder.com.

One of those Bills fans is a double amputee and a cancer survivor named Charles "Chuckie" Sonntag, according to the Buffalo News. Sonntag beat cancer last year. He's suffered from polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, also known as Albright's disease, since he was a child. His left arm was amputated 20 years ago and his left leg was amputated in March, according to the paper. He also lives on a monthly $825 social security check.

"My experience has proven two things: a handicapped person can accomplish just about anything and Texas A&M will sue just about anybody," Sonntag told the paper.

An attorney notified the university of Sonntag's disabilities.


Texas A&M is subject to lose its trademark if it does not actively take action to protect it.

The four fans changed the name of the website to BillsFanThunder.com, but Texas A&M demanded more.

Attorneys wanted all 250 posters promoting the site taken down from restaurants and bars around Buffalo.

"We have been negotiating about a turnover date for several weeks. When it became apparent they would not make that change, we gave them a deadline of last Friday to respond. The domain name still needs to be transferred from their ownership. It is still redirecting to their website. Their use of social media is still in question," Texas A&M spokesman Shane Hinckley told the paper.

Wednesday, Erie County Comptroller Stefan I. Mychajliw Jr. provided FOX Sports Southwest with a copy of a letter of support for Sonntag that he sent to Texas A&M University president Mark Hussey.

He offered to assist in reaching a "reasonable resolution" that avoided litigation, but called Texas A&M's threat "ridiculous and classless."

The purpose of the website was to organize support for the Bills to stay in Buffalo. Three more fans--Charles Pellien, Anthony Lynch and Paul Roorda--are also subjects of the complaints.

Pellien told the paper he felt like the university overreacted.

Everyone uses 'the 12th man.' It's a shame that people can actually buy and own words," he said. "We're not doing anything to harm their school, or take any business away from them or making any money off of it. It's just a fan organization that wants to save our Bills."

First of all: What???

Second: That changes the whole story. You make it sound like they are just being d*cks about someone messing with their trademark, but if they didn't do anything about it they could lose the trademark entirely.

Do you think a school should be able to stop others from using that term in reference to their fan base, just because the school's fans used it first (assuming that is true)? This sort of thing has nothing to do with the purposes of trademark law and protection. No one is confused about the source of origin of some consumer product in an instance like this. This sort of litigation concerns so-called trademark dilution, which attempts to extend trademark protection well beyond any reasonable understanding of the law's purpose. See the Victor's Little Secret case for a really dumb example. Luckily, the Supreme Court dealt a blow to these "dilution" cases and ruled against Victoria's Secret in that case. But, that is why some trademark holders insist that they need to sue everyone for every single use of the mark lest they lose it. They are worried about the term becoming generic. But, so what if it does? It isn't like the 12th man operates to inform consumers about the source of origin of some product. It is just a nickname for a group of people who make nothing, sell nothing, and do nothing other than cheer as a group. It isn't a product brand connected with consumer good will or anything.

So you honestly believe that if they don't pursue this guy in Buffalo hanging flyers for some Facebook page inside the local laundromat, and threaten him with litigation and MORE, they're going to lose their trademark on "The 12th Man".

We should trademark "Touchdown" and "TD" then sue the shit out of anyone who uses it. We'll own ESPN by the end of the year.

LOL, Read, so is the phrase the French use to describe the eighth wonder of the world, but I'm not complaining. Indeed, I think it would be a travesty not to use the feminine when referring to 'la petite mort'.
