Verizon Sues Verizon

by Adam Strong in Categories: April 1, Up to the Minute

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

In a move reminiscent of the Coke vs Coke Zero lawsuit , Verizon Wireless has sued Verizon Internet over trademark infringement.  Attorneys for the two companies refused to comment on the pending legal battle.

Verizon may be best known as one of the most aggressive companies in pursuing legal cases against anyone in the domain space who infringes on their trademark.  The company, however,  is also widely known and has been sued previously for monetizing on trademark error traffic itself on Verizon internet services.

Verizon Wireless clearly has had enough of paying for ads that were showing up on Verizon Internet. It’s unclear if Verizon Internet will counter-sue Verizon Wireless for serving Verizon Internet ads on their mobile platform.

This is far too plausible to be an April Fool’s gag.

HILARIOUS!

[…] Verizon Sues Verizon – a hilarious play on how Verizon sues everyone for trademark infringement, but at the same time is one of the biggest infringers itself. […]
