Lones Group Lawsuit

Oh for the love of all things stupid.

Please drive me through McDonald’s so that I can make a million bucks over hot coffee.

Of course I am not a lawyer, and these are just my opinions, but I am befuddled. Apparently the Lones Group thinks there is a zebra-related Trademark violation causing business to be diverted away from them  …

Um …

  • The Lones Group is located in Washington state and sells marketing stuff to real estate agents.
  • The Strong Team Realtors®, AKA Real Estate Zebra, is a real estate team located in VIR-FRICKEN-GINIA (Virginia) that helps consumers buy and sell homes.

First, they are a continent apart and second, they are “technically” NOT in the same industry.

Again … for the love of all things stupid.

There has been a tremendous amount of social reaction in the online communities regarding this case – specifically in support of the Strong Team Realtors®. Heck! There is even a Facebook Fan Page in Support if the Real Estate Zebra!

I am curious to see how this will all play out … and if this lawsuit, in the long run,  really WAS in the best interests of those who chose to start it. We shall see.

In the meantime, go over to the Zebra Defense Fund and show your support for Daniel and the Strong Team Realtors®…
