    This does beg the question: are goat herders and other producers of goat derived products now subject to legal action?
    Also, if the goats are humping, can I leave the stickers on my pod?

    Blessed are the cheese makers (including makers of all dairy products, cow, sheep, goat, etc.).
    No longer stuck.

    Man, you're more hung up on defending Backcountry.com than everyone else is on bashing them.

    All aboard the boycott train, though. Money talks.

    This is some bullshit. After buying a few larger items on backcountry, like skis, there is a customer account manager who emails me periodically about shopping there. I just sent her a link to this article and let her know I will be reconsidering where I buy my outdoor gear.

    I know it's tempting to buy gear cheap online but this is a good reminder to support your local mom and pop shops, even if you have to pay a little more.

    That weak copyright case reminds me of the mythical lawsuit Warner Brothers took out against the Marx Brothers for the title of their film: "A Night in Casablanca".

    As the popular myth goes, Groucho threatened a countersuit for WB's use of "Brothers".

    Because if they don't defend their trademark, then it becomes unenforceable.
    Or something like that.

    In addition to a boycott I vote for a mass sticker tagging campaign.

    One of you artsy, photochoppery talented mags needs to craft a sticker with their stupid Goat taking it in der poopenhousen. Group fund a production run of mass quantities. Ubiquitous hilarious placements with a thread to document results.
