TWiT Sues Twitter After Falling Way Past Rock Bottom

Update 2: This is the audio that Leo thinks will win his case. Listen and tell us what you think.

Update 1: Linus Tech Tips addressed the conflict, saying “I don’t personally think most people even know what TWiT is.” (58:21)

Lisa Laporte reaching for that hopeful Twitter settlement money

When Leo Laporte showed his inbox Sunday, we wondered what a message from his lawyer stating “We will file the complaint Tuesday since the courts are closed on Monday” was about.

We started searching the Northern District of California Courts and the federal PACER system, but we found nothing.

Unfortunately, TechCrunch scouped us.

TWiT sued Twitter for trademark infringement.

The chat room was/is muted for hours, of course. Ycombinator discussions are happening — including saying TD is “made by a hateful obsessive” and “run by an ex-employee”.

Leo Laporte is alleging that some reasonable person would confuse Twitter for TWiT’s useless trademarks. Nobody knows what TWiT is!

As one Total Drama chat room member put it:

“One shows NFL games, one shows a fat man’s stubby pecker

Leo’s lawyers wrote, without irony:

“The TWIT mark is a strong, distinctive mark, in which substantial goodwill has developed to the benefit of plaintiffs Laporte and TWiT.”

Wow.

Leo — probably Lisa — wants a settlement. That’s how desperate they are for money. They even enabled monetization on their YouTube videos recently. They want that Twitter money to keep going on cruises since their actual business is toast.

  1. You nailed it, Leica. This lawsuit is about one thing; securing a settlement large enough that Leo can close up the Shithole Studios, not worry about the lease, and host 1-2 shows a day via his home office.

    I’d love to know TWiT’s financials in relation to ad buys and the viewer/listenership numbers. For them to sue Twitter, a move so desperate and vain, they must be in BIG trouble.

      I believe the end-game that Leo & Lisa are hoping for is that Twitter decide to buy out TWiT just to make the lawsuit go away giving Leo the chance to walk away and focus on podcasting (using YouTube live streaming from his retirement cottage they are looking at purchasing in Hawaii.

      1. LLS: …giving Leo the chance to walk away and focus on podcasting (using YouTube live streaming from his retirement cottage they are looking at purchasing in Hawaii.

        Nobody wants to buy TWiT because the network isn’t sustainable post-Leo. This isn’t CNN or FOX, once he goes TWiT ceases to exist.

        He and Lisa are praying for a settlement, and they might get it depending on Twitter’s desire to fight this. If you’ve watched TWiT over the past 18-24 months you know that Leo doesn’t give a damn, that he’s more concerned about his next vacation than producing a worthwhile show.

        The problem is he’s locked into a lease on the Shithole Studios that runs $9k/month. When I first read about this lawsuit I figured Leo would be shooting for the moon. My guess is he’d settle for mid to low 7 figures, enough to write off the lease and retire comfortably while doing a show a day from his home.

        My, how the mighty have fallen. The real shame of it all is that the Brickhouse Studios never got turned into a pub. That building gave TWiT an aura of legitimacy. Now it’s a sad joke.

        1. If they offered Leo low 8 figures I bet he’d fold TWiT instantaneously.

          This is about the lease. He constantly laments the fact that they’re locked into the Shithole Studios. With Padre leaving for the Vatican and his or Lisa’s inability to attract mid to high level talent, the network is beginning to show cracks.

          He doesn’t need a studio if it’s just him and guests via Skype. $108k/year on the lease, employee salaries, miscellaneous costs. If he worked from home, had Lisa do the books, and kept along 1 idiot engineer he’d pocket 8 figures annually.

          We’ve all joked for years about the end being nigh for TWiT. This lawsuit is the deathknell. He either wins and rides off into the sunset, dabbling in tech on his own time, or Twitter wins and things get really nasty.

          1. Twitter’s user base is flat (and half of those are bots or Russian trolls), they consistently lose money, and all of their executives keep jumping ship. I can’t see why they would want to blow money on a high settlement when it’s clear Leo would never win in a million years.

  2. Hasn’t Leo bragged many times in the past about how he came up with the name first, and he knows Biz Stone and Jack Dorsey (he is also friends with Steve Martin and once spent the weekend at Steve Jobs house!) and how he’d never sue blah blah blah?

      Leo STOLED the name from Tucson Western International Telethon (aka TWIT) who was using it 20 years before Leo did!! If anyone should sue for diluting and stealing a name, it should be Tucson Western suing Leo!! Leo’s venture into video has totally and completely confused the public on whether “TWIT” means either Leo’s stuff or Tucson Western International’s content. Wonder if any “prior use” argument can be made that nullifies Leo’s legal “ownership” of that word/acronym. I also have always wondered if the small letter I in TW i T means something in legalese.

      And what about TWITch.tv??? Doesn’t that totally video site encroach on TWiT’s domain of business?? Come on Leo, sue Bezos for a few billion or so!! You have to enforce trademarks evenly. You can’t enforce for one significant breach and not for another!!

      Just ramblings from a guy who look 1 legal class in business school throwing stuff up against the wall!!

        Because he thinks he can win against Twitter because of the audio at the top of the post and that weakly worded terse email saying “we aren’t going into video” meaning present tense. He’s got nothing. Listen to that audio and read the email in the complaint.

        He’s hoping for a payout, not to have them stop “using” his trademark.

  3. Seem to remember a lot of coverage on TWiT shows back in the day about “patent trolls”, companies that just exist to shake down more successful businesses for cash.

    I’m surprised Leo still has money left for the lawyers.

      Lisa is hurting Leo & TWiT… When there was the Twit Cottage and needed minimum cash flow to stay running, Twit was a really good network…It started to suck when the bookkeeper was named CEO and decided to run it like a Fortune 500 company and decided they needed the Brickhouse…
      Before Lisa took control, Leo wanted to build a presence on the East Coast (maybe could have partnered with GFQ)…With modern technology many of the shows could be done from home studios, etc, and the cottage could have been adequate going forward..

      1. Since so many of the shows have at least one person on Skype, having a million dollar studio has never made a whole lot of sense to me. ScreenSavers is the only show that I can think of that probably needs a space. …A space….not a million dollar studio!

        She’s running TWiT straight into the ground like G4 did with TechTV.

    1. Leo has often worried in the office about Twitter when it first appeared, but decided not to sue because it might hurt someone’s feelings and never did shit when he should have. All this oral agreement BS and the rest are lies. They would probably settle until they saw that Leo, a fucking liar, made up bullshit agreements. So they’ll fight it out of spite now.

      Hopefully they will sue HIM for fees and more.

  4. Greedy fuckers hired a brown lawyer, nice job. Don’t see w single Jewish name in the whole document.

    On one hand, this could be the deathblow for TWiT if they really decide to fight and lose. But maybe they will get a payoff and Leo can sail off into the sunset.

  8. I just looked over the complaint. It’s a joke and the wordage at the beginning DEMAND JURY TRIAL is the ultimate in hubris. Leo and Lisa actually think that they’d get sympathy from a jury? Really?

    Furthermore, how is Leo going to explain the Calicanis situation where Jason stole the whole “This Week in…” nomenclature? No suit there. This is an obvious money grab. Who cannot see it?

  9. I’ve never ever thought of TWiT and Twitter being the same or closely related by name or business model. I guess next the Netcast (that somebody must love) will go after Netflix because they distribute video and have Net in their name. Pretty sad.

    This will be dismissed as frivolous or the Jury will penalize TWiT for taking their time from them that they’ll never ever get back.

  10. This so called “lawsuit” will never go anywhere. Twitter has the ball the run the time out. Time is something Leo and TWiT have very little of. If only Leo wasn’t such a dick.

  11. This is bad for journalism in any case. One of the important things about Twitters nature is that is a really significant web service which is also questionable from a business perspective.
    The ability for TWiT to offer any serious commentary or reporting on the state of a service like that given they have open interpersonal and legal issues with it is really questionable, and then that could spread to questions about objectivity in reporting on TWiT’s competition, which includes names such as Google and Facebook.
    That said, TWiT’s quality level has fallen to such a low level no one will probably care about an issue like this anymore.

  12. Uhh, no on the “recently enabled monetization” Leo’s been double dipping on TWIT Yourube reruns for the past year. I even threw a comment or two on the videos calling it out for as much good as that does.

    I’m so fucking sick of people and organizations like this running rampant over the little guys. I hope Twitter countersues TWIT out of existence. Leo managed to destroy one of my YouTube channels a year ago for a vidcap I did of his show. Not in violation of any of his Version 3 creative commons copyright either but he sicked the YouTube police on me anyway.

    I want this bastard to burn and I want to watch it happen.

  13. Yeah, just read the suit. Leo’s gonna get his ass handed to him. Want a jury trial? Fine! Ask the average guy on the street what Twitter is and everyone from a CEO to a homeless guy will know. Ask about TWIT, and they’ll tell you it’s something you call a stupid person.

    Which is completely accurate on many levels.

      I don’t think you understand trademark law, because it doesn’t work that way.

      But Leo will lose. Often, the lawyers have a fee agreement. Leo will pay 5K and they’ll file the case and if the lawyers want to take the case farther based on Twitter response they will do it on their own dime but get 50% of proceeds. The big companies face a lot of little claims, mostly class action, and basically dole out cash based on merit of claim. Vast majority get nothing and give up. Very few make an impact or get to the papers/trades. Leo’s case should not have been picked up by media, that story was an ignorant and friendly journalist. Probably has been on twit before.

    1. Why is she stressing out over money? Leo stated that TWIT had net revenues of $9.8 million which means her Artisanal agency made around $2.3 million: 20% commission on gross revenues of $12.1 million.
      TWIT has around 15 employees. If they average $100.000 in salary, that would be $1.5 million.
      Leo stated that the rent on the studio was $8000 or $9000 a month for a total of around $96000 to $1.8 million a year.
      Throw in $100.000 for utilities and other expenses and you are at around $3.4 million.
      As for the hosts, Leo told a visitor that TWIT no longer pays them a percentage of revenues the shows produce: TWIG hosts receive $250 a show and his “major” show hosts are paid $500 a show. TWIT guests are no longer paid anything; they are usually on once a year and the publicity they receive by appearing on the show was enough compensation.

            Interesting how so many of these alleged “superstar tech babes” (Belmont, Lane, etc.) sort of fizzled out over the years…moving up to supposedly high profile jobs, only to bounce around, never staying in one place too long and never making it big.

            It is interesting. I agree. As much as TWiT doesn’t matter. Sarah Lane was nothing without Leo, and after Leo, she is nothing. She isn’t interesting, she is just a blah woman.

            They’re old now. No betas beat it to them anymore which makes them valueless.

          3. Sarah Lane fell off a cliff after she left TWiT, so much so that she had to saddle up with Tom Merritt on his DTNS (which is worse than anything that airs on TWiT.)

            Veronica Belmont seems to have moved behind the scenes. I’m not sure what her husband is up to, but I think he makes enough money that she’s allowed to indulge in the typical SF/Silicon Valley startup BS.

            Sarah never should’ve left TWiT, she should’ve doubled down, demanded a bigger role, and moved closer to the studio. God knows Leo would’ve given her whatever she wanted.

            Belmont, and I hate to say this, is a dime a dozen. Every 6 months a new ditzy tech obsessed woman pops up that everyone goes crazy about. One year it’s Veronica, the next iJustine, then Naomi Kyle.

            Leo may have given her whatever she wanted, but I’m sure Mrs. Laporte would have felt otherwise.

  24. TWiT is like a car crash. You know you should just move along, nothing to see here.

    But you just can’t help slowing the car down to stare at the carnage.

    Brutal

  25. TWiT is the biggest waste of time EVER. Why would anybody subject themselves to the idiotic banter between morons who know nothing about anything? Podcasts like The Joe Rogan Experience, NoAgenda and dozens of personal improvement podcasts on any subject you can image are just a click away. TWiT isn’t a tech show. It’s a no show…anyone listening gets dumber and less informed.

    1. The problem is TWiT is so bad that nobody is watching to pull clips. I’m sure Leo has fucked up hundreds of times over the past 12 months, but the people who used to monitor TWiT and curate content for this site are long gone.

        True. We’re keeping an eye on the lawsuit though. Many documents going back and forth. It doesn’t look like they’re settling, so far. Twitter has 3 lawyers officially on the case in the court documents.

          I tip over dead asleep after more that a minute.

          LOL Leo fishing for a payout… twit vs. twitter — like twitter’s doing any harm to them, deep in denial smh.

          Leo is too fucked up to realize that he and only he is responsible for the shitcan the rating are in now. He started that ridiculous political diatribe almost two years ago and still hasn’t gotten the message that he, Bernie, Hillary and the two people left in chatroom are completely wrong in their opinions about the president and The USA.

          He fucked himself in so many ways beginning with letting Lisa make any programming decisions at all. All he does anymore is just virtue signaling to the ugly broads wearing pussy hats and their cuckold husbands.

          The definition of mental illness.
