Received a sternly worded email (certified letter is on the way, I’m told) that alerts me I have 7 days to give up my newly acquired Web site or face legal action.

I’ve talked to a couple of lawyer friends who assure me I have little legal footing on which to stand. Even if I won the right to keep www.mciverizon.com, I would be barred from using it commercially.

So, alas, it looks as though I’ll be buying no small islands. Of course, I have 7 days, so I think I’ll wait a while longer … just to make Verizon sweat.
