Cease and Desist Letter - Lawsuit Threat Escalated

Jagex' fruitless attempts to threat us to stop the sales of our fully legitimate services in the game Runescape continues, as I received the letter cited below. This time the U.K. based law firm has hired a U.S. based law firm in order to create a "draft Complaint", a 50 page printout of a lawsuit that they threaten to file in the state of Nevada. However there is no way they can win in court. If they could, why spend over a year threatening to sue?

Re: Jagex v. Rune Word Entertainment, et al.

Dear Mr. *****,

We represent Jagex Ltd. ("Jagex"), the makers of Runescape, in the United States.
Enclosed is a draft Complaint that we will file in the United States District Court for the District of Nevada if you do not agree cease every aspect of your illegal scheme, as outlined in the Complaint, within seven (7) days of the receipt of this letter. To avoid litigation, you must also sign a settlement agreement, agreeing permanently to cease and desist from engaging in the unauthorized sale of Runescape items, with concomitant liquidated damages for violations of the agreement. If forced to file suit, we will seek maximum damages available to us under the law.
This letter is without waiver of any rights that Jagex may have in this matter, all of which it expressly reserves.

Brett E. Lewis, Esq.
