MonaVie Tries To Silence Lazy Man

September 14, 2009

MonaVie Legal has been busy sending requests to Lazy Man to stop using the MonaVie name in his meta tags. They claim that using the term “MonaVie” in these tags is a violation of their trademark. I wonder if they have sent similar letters to all of the other sites critical of MonaVie that can be easily found on the Internet.

This is just another attempt by MonaVie to game search engines from having critical assessments of the product, business opportunity, and unscrupulous distributors from being easily searchable on the Internet. We’ve seen examples in the past from other MLM corporations and distributors trying to game Google. That didn’t work then, and I doubt it’s going to work for MonaVie to. My take is that this legal cyber-bullying is going to backfire on MonaVie.

    Ahhh, our good friend information control reveals his ugly little head again.

    Don’t fix the problem, try and control communication.

    Yeah. That’ll work.

    @monaviedrinker:

    I can guarantee you that of all the people commenting here, you have done the least amount of research into MonaVie juice, MonaVie LLC, Monarch Health Sciences, Dallin Larsen, “Dr.” Schauss, And countless other aspects of MonaVie.

    Schauss’ own research concludes that MonaVie is very low in antioxidants. Do not confuse Acai berry research with MonaVie research. They are two very different “foods”.

    I believe in MonaVie Juice. It has improved my health. Don’t much care about the whole political name copyright stuff.

    Bryan, AKA foodloverguy, It is good that you are feeling better and your diabetes seems to be more under control. However, you really, really need to read the new FTC guidelines and then update your website to reflect the new criteria. You are risking your own “business” as well as risking harm to MonaVie LLC by making medical claims that are atypical and not proven.
