Fighting for freerecyling

When is a trademark not a trademark

When DB says it is.  TFN has lost its trademark infringement claim against FreecycleSunnyvale.  This news is hot off the press.  See this post on fcnext for more info.

Get this Deron Beal, your trademark claims were bad for this freecycling industry.  They were divisive and control freakery of the worst dimensions.  And you have spent corporate donations unwisely chasing a stupid dream. You have forced the closure of groups whose only goal was to remove items from landfill.  You have denigrated people who worked so hard for a dream that they initially thought they shared with you.

You have lost.  Time to be graceful in defeat.

  1. So far, no word from db. He’s probably having his lawyers come up with a wishy-washy statement that places blame on someone (anyone!) else. I expect some of his top people will lose their “jobs”.
