Dear (name removed):
We are counsel for Hasbro, Inc. and Hasbro Studios LLC ("Hasbro"), the owners of the copyrights and trademarks for the MY LITTLE PONY line of toy ponies and related cartoons, including the FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC animated television series. We write because we believe you are poroducing a television show whose premise and characters bear striking resemblance to our property:
- The title of the show in question, "My Little Porny: Friendship is My Waifu", clearly bears a resemblance to our trademark.
- The plotline of the show suggests heavily to be borrowed from Hasbro-licensed fare. "Six friends with dicks," the site reads, "fight off evil mosters (made of dicks) with magical friendship powers (made of dicks) every week, and learn helpful lessons with strong moral messages (made of dicks)."
- It is clear to us that the main character, Twoglit Splorko, is based wholly on our trademarked character, Twilight Sparkle. They are both unicornponies with immense magical power who share the same basic design and color scheme. We assert that the fact that Twoglit Splorko has a 13-inch 'constantly-throbbing genital protrusion' is not enough to satisfy differentiation of likeness.

- Finally, and perhaps most damningly, the setting in which this show takes place is a clear infringement on our trademarks. To quote: "The show takes place in space, and will be filmed with IMAX cameras aboard an ACTUAL, REAL LIFE space station ACTUALLY IN low-earth orbit. But, you know, if we can't afford that, we'll lift Ponyville from MLP and hope no one notices."On behalf of Hasbro, we therefore request that you immediately remove or disable access to the website in question, MyLittlePony.xxx.ca. We furthermore suggest you seek psychological help and may god have mercy on your soul(s).Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.Sincerely yours,(contact information removed)
Don't worry, folks. We are quickly remedying the situation. He have taken down the offending site, but we are already in talks with local drug lords for funding to purchase a license for Hasbro. Have faith, bronies.
