Comedy Central has a tv show called Battlebots which pits mechanical robots against each other. Barrett Lyon is a small ISP that owns the domain name battlebots.org which he uses in respect to IRC and has held for a year longer than the Battlebots tv show has held their tradmark on the name “Battlebots”. Yep, you guessed it. Here come the lawyers.

Now I enjoy Battlebots, the tv show, very much but this really bothers me what they are doing. I can do without watching the show so maybe I should write Comedy Central a letter and let them know how I feel.
