Fighting for freerecyling

The Untouchables

TFN have a new contender to fight – the Australian Recyclers Community. This is interesting in that normally TFN hides behind Yahoo’s paranoia over a legal debacle and abuses that fear to ensure Yahoo deletes groups, which Yahoo has the authority to do. But by contrast this Australian community seems little or nothing to do with Yahoo and so TFN attempting to use Yahoo as a pawn will not help them. Indeed this one is particularly interesting to watch since also any of TFN’s trademark claims – however fraudulent or tangible – will have no legal status in Australia. Though I am sure that won’t stop TFN claiming they have fully registered trademarks etc as well as sending a flood of Cease & Desist letters. I mean smokers have difficulty giving up smoking often claiming denial, why would TFN behave differently? (No insult intended to smokers.) Also as far as I know TFN has no legal status in Australia.

Is this therefore a true Untouchable?
