No kidding, then. Open a startup. But DO contact Medium before doing business and get their CONTRACTUAL approval. Otherwise they will SUE YOU. They will Probably want at least HALF your profits. Negotiate them down to 30%. Then start hiring some local out of work college grads and START RAKING IN THOSE RUPEES!!!

But...Be smart. Tell them you have a lawyer (even if you don't) and a local copyright on this business idea. That way they won't be able to say no to you and then turn around and open that business themselves.

Send them an email, or even a letter (email will probably do) and get the process started. But be very professional. And address it to the "Legal Department."
