Your local resident, Attorney Paul C. Rapp, is threatening to bring litigation against my childrens' band, which plays all ages shows, mostly for free, over some absurd version of prior use of a name. Look at what Mr. Rapp wrote in his own blog:

"Jane showed me a letter she had just received, a classic Angry Lawyer Letter from an attorney in Iowa. This lawyer accused Jane of copyright infringement of a quilt design, and the (sic) he proceeded to recite chapter and verse of the parade of horrors that could befall someone committing such a heinous act: statutory damages of up to $150,000 per act of infringement, seizure and destruction of the infringing goods, a levy of attorney’s fees and court costs expended, disgorgement of profits, etc., and so on.
I consider myself a skillful writer of dramatic and scary Angry Lawyer Letters. This was a good one. You’d have thought someone had ripped off “Gone With the Wind” or something. And all things considered, it was absurd."

Are you going to let him get away with this? Go grab the torches and call him out - what a hypocrite! I'd suggest he take the stain with him and move back to New York!
