Rick Schwartz Nexts ChatRoulette.com

by Adam Strong in Categories: April 1

Please note that the following is a parody intended for April Fools day 2010.

Rick Schwartz announced on his blog today that he is seeking trademark infringement charges against up-and-coming web cam website ChatRoullete.com for it’s use of his trademarked phrase “Next”.

The popular site lets users chat with random people. If you are not interested in talking to a particular person you can pass on to the next person by clicking the “NEXT” button.  Users of the site have coined the action as a “nexting” or getting “nexted”.

Schwartz claims in his charges that the “Next” phrase has been clearly lifted from his first use in commerce of 1996.  “I NEXTED HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE BEFORE THIS KID EVEN KNEW WHAT .COM WAS. HE’S GOT SOME NERVE !! ,” stated Schwartz in a statement to DNN.

Hmm I can easily see the similarities between Rick’s board and ChatRoulette, an overwhemlimg number of cocks for example.

Should be a good lawsuit to read.
