Akard’s Attorney Denies Buffett’s claims, vows David and Goliath Battle
Galveston Texas – Attorneys for the defendant Robert Akard and http://www.UnderOneHut.com
vows to battle Jimmy Buffett on his claimed trademark infringement action.
Darrell Apffel, Esquire says this is a classic case of David vs. Goliath in the United States Justice system.
Today Jimmy Buffett without notice to my client obtained a temporary restraining order which demands that my client shut down his website, http://www.UnderOneHut.com , completely.
While it is true that my client may sell certain licensed Jimmy Buffett products, in competition with the songwriters own website, the products Buffett complained about represents 1% of the products http://www.UnderOneHut.com offers.
In response to initial correspondence from Buffett’s attorneys, UnderOneHut.com made significant and meaningful modifications to its website and advertising, which specifically complied with Mr. Buffett’s requests. But despite these good faith efforts Mr. Buffett, without notice to UnderOneHut.com or myself as legal counsel, undertook to file this suit and obtain a Temporary Restraining Order seeking to shut down the entire website, which we will vigorously fight.
My client is a small business owner and recognizes that this can be a very expensive and timely type of litigation. However, he does not intend to succumb to Jimmy Buffett’s bully tactics, as he has undertaken with other small business owners in the past. The facts forthcoming in this upcoming litigation will show that Mr. Buffett has a pattern of litigious behavior in order to eliminate competitors of his retail empire.
My clients UnderOneHut.com refuse to be intimidated by Mr. Buffett and the many attorneys his wealth may retain.
