SparkFun gets cease and desist from Sparc International

Sparc International sent a cease and desist letter to my favorite hardware hackers SparkFun today.

This kind of stuff pisses me off. The boys and girls at sparkfun did a much better job of describing the lunacy of this proposal better than I can, so head over there to read the whole thing.

In this day and age, if you pull this kind of legal crap, and it clearly has no merit the whole internet just mocks you. Big corporations can't push mom and pops around silently anymore. I'm mostly blogging just to give Sparc International (a subsidiary of Sun Microsystems) bad press. They are clearly either assholes, idiots, or both.
