(b) In addition, please cease & desist any member(s) or guest user(s), that request their member name to be exactly or closely resemble to, the name, word or phrase "lappner". Any refusal to meet our request in Paragraph I, lines (a) & (b) will result in severe legal consequences.

Um, I am not a lawyer or anything but I don't think there's a rule against someone using a handle on a forum that isn't theirs. Oh, wait, I'm not really Gandolf, maybe JRR Tolkein is gonna sue me! Lol!

Not as unique as you say, a quick search online through the YAHOO search engine I was able to find many people with the last name LAPPNER. I could understand if the name in question was Penis EnlargementPSI.

For me to expect one of my members to cease and desist using a name you will need to supply me with copyright documentation stating this name as being owned exclusively to you.

It is not illegal to use someone's name unless it is trademarked.

lol guys I almost missed that thread. That asshole actually made two of them. Well as I said I don't want to take any chances and have something to do with the assholes like that so mods change my name. Now that this shit is going on I really don't like the old one which can't be mentioned here lol. Change it to ElCapitandick.

lappner.. shit, i mean ElCapitan, i was under the impression from another thread, that your nickname was "Lap", which was a cut down version of your surname: lappner.

correct me if i am wrong, but i don't think it's illegal for you to use YOUR last name as your alias... *shrugs*.

Hm yeah dopefish I did wrote in some thread that Lap was my nickname, but my real surname is not Lappner. It has a similar structure as Lappner but it isn't the same. Lappner is just a nickname I developed from my surname and it sounds to me kinnda German, because I am a fan of WW2 German troops and it just sounded good to me.(for clarification I am not neo-nazi just interested in history of WW2). Well I didn't have no intention to harm anyone. Hey Legal man are you from States or from Germany.
Well now that you wrote it ElCapitan sounds way better to me now lol.
Supra change my name to just ElCapitan.

Later
ElCapitan

It's a shame you had to change your name, but I really do not think you had to. If they're using 'Lappner' as some kind of corporate identity, they're the ones taking the chance of another Lappner deciding to use their name as a business name.

Just as in the case of McDonald's, I don't believe 'McDonalds' can be copyrighted, although I do believe the Golden Arches, their symbol, is. If your name is James McDonald, they cannot tell you, for example, that you cannot open a fast-food restaurant using your name. You wouldn't be able to use Golden Arches though.

Maybe there's a patent/copyright attorney here that can clarify that.
