For years, I produced a series of videos (with a crappy webcam) with a title that I can no longer use because of trademark issues.
Fellow blogger Dana Loesch over at Mamalogues (hint), asked me nicely to stop using the title of my videos because she owned the registered trademark. There was only one problem: I said the word in every single one of the 178 videos, which chronicle my motherhood experience from when my kids were in preschool until I had cancer.
So my lawyer said I had a case because I could prove that I had actually used the trademarked word in commerce before she registered it. And for a while, I pursued it, even though I didn’t really want to. That’s her brand. I get it.
But I haven’t recorded any of these videos using the word in years, and I don’t want to fight anyhow. Besides, I figured out how to use my editing software.
So, in the spirit of “coopetition,” I hereby leave the word to Dana and use my own to present, what else? Momma Said…
