This currently shows on their wikipedia page:

Controversies
Monster Energy Corporation has been criticized for its policy to sue companies or groups which use the word "Monster" or the letter "M" in their marketing for copyright infringement. Examples include the aquarium hobbyist site Monster Fishkeepers [10], a beverage review site which published an unfavorable review of the Monster Energy drink [11] and a Vermont microbrewery which marketed a beer named "Vermonster". Monster Energy Corporation dropped the lawsuit against the microbrewery due to the negative publicity the lawsuit generated [12].

This from a single micro-brewery in Vermont. And that, ladies and gentlemen and UNCLE RUCKUSES, is all we need to know to inform our activity.

I have been asked to go onto Blue Zoo Radio this Sunday evening and speak about the all of this.
I would like to defer to someone who is much better detailed in the entire subject than myself.

Volunteers?

Solicit the EFF, they might help you.

Maybe mount an open-source style defense, filing pro-se and getting ideas if you can't get a proper lawyer.

There is talk that MEC is also going after Monstersnakes.com and that USARK is getting involved to support Monstersnakes. I couldn't find any info about this on either Monstersnakes.com or USARKs site.
If it's true, hopefully a link will be provided. Maybe there is greater safety (surely there is greater support) in numbers.
