[epub] RE: Trade mark violation?
This is interesting Dianne,
Many years ago, I received a simliliar note, directly from Barbara Sher because the term Success Teams was on my site. Every now and again, she checks the search engines and alerts people. She said she owned the term, and if I wanted to use it, I had to include a sentance about her book with an active link on my site.
So I removed it.
I'd write to Kendal and let her know. She's had that ezine name for many, many years and I see a [tm] by it, so that, to me means she owns the trademark
The other thing is, and this is sad to say, with lawyer happy folks, is it worth fighting? In the situation I was in, I thought not, so I just changed the term to Success Circles.
Best of success and lots of

Subject: [epub] Trade mark violation?
Dear Web site Owner,
The page in question has an article (which I have permission to use) by Kendall Summerhawk. Can the phrase "weekly marketing wisdom" really be trade marked? Surely it's too general a term for that. I'm in the UK, but presumably any US trademark laws would be international.
My main question is really - how far should we go in checking out articles supplied by the article banks?
Have a good week all,
