Coinye responds to Kanye complaint, says currency now based on ‘half-man half-fish hybrid’

The developers of Coinye — formerly known as Coinye West — have responded to a cease and desist letter from Kanye West with their own cease and desist, insisting that an updated version  of their cryptocurrency is unrelated to the singer and now references a half-man-half-fish hybrid who is wearing sunglasses. Coinyes logo was initially a stylized version of Kanye West superimposed on the back of a gold coin, but Wests lawyers complained that the currencys name and image constituted a trademark violation, falsely implying that Coinye was an officially sanctioned product. As you can tell from our new community-submitted, updated materials, we make no visual or verbal reference to Kanye West but to a half-man-half-fish hybrid who is wearing sunglasses, again, totally separate from any resemblance to your client.
