The web page that used to be the home of my band, ARGUS, has been taken over by new ownership. I have no problem with that, simply because we gave it up.
BUT, I do have a problem with what the new owner has down. The page is basically a search engine ... a search engine with links to sites your mother wouldn't want you to be looking at right now ... NEWPY! You are at WORK!
So i don't have a problem with them taking the ever so popular domain name, but the likeness they have put on the main page is sick. There is a photo of a guy playing guitar ... some guy that looks a cross between Fred Durst and some tool from the Calling. Underneath this toolbox is a caption that reads "Argus - ready and willing to rock your face off." For those of you that do not know, that was OUR slogan. OURS! And the logo that is next to the toolbox is strikingly close to the ARGUS logo that can be seen here.
Now, we had no copyright to this stuff ... not the slogan, not the logo ... hell, not even our lyrics. But this just tans my hide. So here is what I ask of you fine people. Let's put our differences aside with this new owners of this web page and tell them just how much we appreciate them stealing our likeness. We can simply do this by emailing these strange people.
I'm not saying go off the deep end, because I don't want anyone getting in trouble. But just let 'em know YOU know ARGUS and YOU don't appreciate what they've done.
Thanks for listening ...
