These are the guys who helped keep Christmas
and the surrounding months very interesting. The etoy art syndicate (www.etoy.com) was sued
by the American corporate
, alleging trademark infringement. As a result, NSI
shut down the etoy
.com domain indefinitely
. The funny thing is, etoy.com was there before etoys.com! Anyway, thus began the Toywar
, during which thousands of TOYWAR.soldier
s organized to send massive amounts of letters, gather intelligence
, and make cool music
to keep everyone's morale high. Eventually, of course, etoy
won, got the suit dismissed with prejudice
, and got their domain back.
Of course, now etoy is under fire from the makers of LEGO(c) bricks for using images of the LEGO(c) two-way radio and LEGO people. Looks like TOYWAR 2 is about to begin...
