Yeehaw. I just got a cease-and-desist letter from an entity that calls itself “Dixona Transport.”
I am evaluating my options as we speak.
Addendum: Here is the letter:
I am writing to inform you that “Dixona” is a registered trademark of Dixona Transport, a Limited Liability Corporation in the State of Florida, with all rights reserved. Your web-site makes enough references to “Dixona” to appear first on a search using Google or Yahoo and this could cause potential customers to confuse an affiliation between your site and my company.
I respectfully ask that you remove all references to “Dixona” from your site. If you do not I will contact the following organizations about taking your site down or obtaining your identity to take you to court: Domains by Proxy your domain host, GoDaddy.com its parent company, and EV1Servers your site host. I will also consider taking other actions such as finding any other copyright or trademark violations on your site and contacting the holders of those copyrights or trademarks.
I appreciate your cooperation on this matter,
President, Dixona Transport
[street address withheld]
St. Petersburg, FL 33703
Note: The name of the state has been changed from Dixona to Delosa.
