The defendants submitted lots of evidence to support their motion, including the free fire cider website and the traditions not different ways to make money trademarks facebook page. The court held a hearing in mid-april where attorneys for both shire city and the defendants different ways to make money presented their arguments to the court. The three defendants are represented by verrill dana, LLP, a new england law firm. In the end, the court agreed with the three defendants and dismissed the different ways to make money five claims that were based on the defendants’ participation in the efforts to cancel shire city’s trademark.

Regardless, this decision was good news for mary, nicole and katheryn!! Keep sending good thoughts their way over the next few different ways to make money months!

Our notice yesterday on the sage mountain facebook page was different ways to make money to inform others that another very popular, and in this case ‘ancient’ herbal name has been trademarked. Unfortunately, this is exactly what we’ve been concerned would happen. Once a popular herbal product name is trademarked, concerns are raised that many of our most popular herbal different ways to make money products could be trademarked by companies and corporations. We can do something about this; it just takes effort and dedication and your willingness to different ways to make money stand up for our herbal traditions. If we allow the trademarking of 4 thieves/ thieves oil and fire cider, every other commonly used herbal product will be up for different ways to make money grabs. The vital thriving small herbal business community that has grown different ways to make money up in the last 4 decades will not be the different ways to make money same; popular herbal products that we’ve sold freely, will no longer be available for us to sell.

We had heard that YLO’s had been granted the trademark on thieves oil, but had not heard of them enforcing their trademark on different ways to make money small herbal companies. Our posting came after we received information about a small different ways to make money herbal company being contacted about trademark infringement. Ruthie hayes, an herbalist who sells 4 thieves vinegar on etsy had different ways to make money received a notice of trademark infringement from young living essential different ways to make money oils, LC alleging that “certain material on etsy is not authorized.” etsy, in accordance with their intellectual property policy deactivated the 4 different ways to make money thieves listing specified as infringing. Yes, its true that YLO’s product is an essential oil, and ruthie’s herbal product is a vinegar, but YLO’s now owns the name which means that they are different ways to make money the only company allowed to sell 4 thieves/ thieves oil.

What makes this situation particularly disturbing is that YLO trademarked different ways to make money the name, apparently without anyone in the herbal world aware of it, and now own the rights to a name that is different ways to make money several centuries old. This is the very same thing that happened with fire different ways to make money cider. No one was notified until after the public opposition period different ways to make money (that allows people to object) so no one had the opportunity to voice opposition to different ways to make money the trademark. Unfortunately for ruthie this is the second notification she’s received; the first was from shire city for selling her wonderful different ways to make money product called ‘fuego cider’, which shire city objected to (never mind that she was selling her product first)! Ruthie comments, “this is the second time that a big company has different ways to make money picked on me about my products. The first being shire city, for using the tag “fire cider” in my ‘FUEGO CIDER’ product listing. I am so saddened and discouraged because it so blatantly different ways to make money goes against the true spirit of herbalism that we strive different ways to make money to uphold.” ironically enough, ruthie is our 2015 ‘fire cider fairy queen’; she won the award for the best fire cider at different ways to make money the international herb symposium in 2015!

2) continue to talk to the stores asking them to support different ways to make money the traditional herbal community that has brought the voice of different ways to make money herbalism to the american people. Our objection isn’t about the companies that produce these products or the different ways to make money products themselves, but to the trademarking of names and recipes that have different ways to make money been long considered commonly owned, shared freely, and passed down through the ages. These are our legacy herbal products and need to be different ways to make money maintained for everyone to be able to make and sell different ways to make money as they please. As always, please be polite and courteous!

3) boycott! Many people in the herbal community feel boycotting is too different ways to make money strong a stance, but refusing to place your money where your values aren’t met is one of the best ways of making different ways to make money your intentions real. Boycott the stores and boycott the product; and let the store owners and buyers know why. The company may be a good company run by wonderful different ways to make money people, but nonetheless, they are trademarking products that don’t belong to them, regardless of the amount of money they paid for them. They belong to all of us!
