....your [posture]....is viewed by my clients as erroneous, bully-like and tending toward totalitarian heavy handedness....Then, for all you fans of the South Butt case (in which much was made of the difference between a "face" and a "butt"), here's some textbook Watkins:
Messrs. Svirk and Valich....are not yet of legal age to lawfully purchase a six-pack of beer. They are students. Some might call them children. While I understand Nike may have sensitivity to the whole child exploitation issue, Chuck and Matt are not shy about their humble economic status as students in pursuit of education. Chuck and Matt embrace the fundamental tenets of the American Way, Capitalism, and maintain a parodic, albeit collegiate, pride in the Univarsity Apparel product....
Nike is operating under the belief that the consuming public is incapable of discerning the difference between "doing" and "nuing". If this is truly the case, kindly advise specifically the range of verbs to which Nike is laying claim when implanted between the frequently employed and uttered words "Just" and "It". If it includes the "F" word, it is suggested that more than a few million Americans may have a superior "prior use" claim.Watkins concluded by suggesting the parties settle their differences out of court.
Your suggestion that Mr. Svirk and Mr. Valich are merely "children" cannot be taken seriously. A cursory review of their website....suggests sophisticated, aware businessmen, rather than 'babes in the woods.'But Furey also expressed a willingness to settle.
