Fuck the Colorado Rockies

Not cause I want Boston to win (isn't that who's playing?) or because I give a rats ass about baseball at all (obviously) but because some twit thinks they can trademark "Rocktober" because people have been using it lately in the context of the colorado rockies. Just because some walking bag of douche figured out he could make a profit trademarking threepeet a while back does not mean that every time a fucking sports team goes to the playoffs they get to trademark a phrase. Especially one that's been used for a long time having nothing to do with fucking baseball. I've heard Rocktober plenty of times this month, usually in reference to fucking rock music you asshole. The basic premise of trademarking a word so that anyone who uses that word has to pay for it seems fucked up to me. I want to trademark the word the, anytime someone uses the word The I want to get paid. See how that could be trouble? Baseball sucks anyway.

I agree. This is going too far. What would FM radio use to promote bar and music events without the perpetually fresh-sounding Rocktober?

However, if more and more words get copyrighted, I got dibs on antidisestasblishmentarianism.

A great word, but I don't think its going to be a very big royalty check.

I think they have to be made up words, might rule out "the."

I wonder if Bush has copyrighted all the dumbass shit he's said?
